Tornado-like vortices structure and dynamic characteristics investigations with high precision laser doppler anemometer

The structure and dynamic characteristics (profiles of vertical and azimuthal component of the velocity vector) of the tornado-like vortex are investgaited by the laser Doppler anemometry method , and their statistical characteristics, as well as the mass transfer rate.
