On vortex stretching for anti-parallel axisymmetric flows

  title={On vortex stretching for anti-parallel axisymmetric flows},
  author={Kyudong Choi and In-Jee Jeong},
We consider axisymmetric incompressible inviscid flows without swirl in R, under the assumption that the axial vorticity is non-positive in the upper half space and odd in the last coordinate, which corresponds to the flow setup for head-on collision of anti-parallel vortex rings. For any such data, we establish monotonicity and infinite growth of the vorticity impulse on the upper half-space. As an application, we achieve infinite growth of Sobolev norms for certain classical/smooth and…

Growth of anti-parallel vorticity in Euler flows
In incompressible Euler flows, vorticity is intensified by line stretching, a process that can come either from the action of shear, or from advection with curvature. Focusing on the latter process,
Axisymmetric incompressible flows with bounded vorticity
This paper is devoted to the proof of global existence and uniqueness results for the three-dimensional incompressible Euler equations with a particular geometrical structure. The focus is on

The problem of whether a spontaneous singularity can occur in finite time in an incompressible inviscid fluid flow is addressed. As suggested by previous numerical simulations, candidate flows are
On the Cauchy Problem for Axi-Symmetric Vortex Rings
We consider the classical Cauchy problem for the three dimensional Navier–Stokes equation with the initial vorticity ω0 concentrated on a circle, or more generally, a linear combination of such data
Fast growth of the vorticity gradient in symmetric smooth domains for 2D incompressible ideal flow
We construct an initial data for the two-dimensional Euler equation in a bounded smooth symmetric domain such that the gradient of vorticity in $L^{\infty}$ grows as a double exponential in time for
Models of vorticity growth in Euler Flows I. Axisymmetric flow without swirl
The question of vortex growth in Euler flows leads naturally to the emergence of paired vortex structure and the “geometric” stretching of vortex lines. In the present paper, the first of two papers

We consider solutions of the 3D axisymmetric Euler equations without swirl. In this setting, well-posedness is well-known due to the essentially 2D geometry. The quantity $$\omega ^\theta /r$$ωθ/r
Vortex stretching and enhanced dissipation for the incompressible 3D Navier–Stokes equations
We consider the 3D incompressible Navier–Stokes equations under the following $$2+\frac{1}{2}$$ 2 + 1 2 -dimensional situation: small-scale horizontal vortex blob being stretched by large-scale,
An Axisymmetric Viscous Vortex Motion and Its Acoustic Emission
Numerical simulation of head-on collision of two vortex rings has been made for various values of a translation Reynolds number from 50 to 500, and the profile of the acoustic wave emitted by the
Exponential growth of the vorticity gradient for the Euler equation on the torus
We prove that there are solutions to the Euler equation on the torus with $C^{1,\alpha}$ vorticity and smooth except at one point such that the vorticity gradient grows in $L^\infty$ at least
