Eruptive flares are sudden releases of magnetic energy that involve many phenomena, several of which can be explained by the standard 2D flare model and its realizations in three-dimensions. We analyze a three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics simulation in the framework of this model that naturally explains the contraction of coronal loops in the proximity of the flare sites, as well as the inflow towards the region above the cusp-shaped loops. We find that two vorticity arcs located along the… Expand
