Optical investigations of the smoke removal dynamics by tornado-like vortex

Dynamics of smoke transfer by tornado-like vortex from localized source placed near its foot is experimentally investigated. Relative distribution of the smoke in the vortex horizontal cross section is defined. It is established that among mass transfer along vortex axis mass exchange between vortex core and surround atmosphere occurs as regular ejections of the spiral formations from vortex core.
