Radius of influence of a vortex
Keywords:Vortex, Spin velocity, Tornado, Eye wall
Using the pressure profile in and around a vortex tube a simple relation for the radius of influence of the vortex has been derived. The results have been applied to assess the region of maximum devastation in a tornado. The analysis reveals that the occurrence of 'eye wall' region in a tropical cyclone is a hydrodynamical phenomenon.
