Vortex breakdown also known as vortex bursting, the phenomenon of vortex breakdown occurs sometimes in vortex filaments such as trailing vortices. This phenomenon is an abrupt and drastic change of structure which sometimes occurs in a swirling flow. Even after three decades of research, however, the physical mechanism that leads to vortex breakdown is not well understood. Vortex breakdown occurs in two distinct types: bubble or axisymmetric type and spiral type. In the first type of breakdown, there is a rapid expansion of the core forming a bubble-like structure that is nearly axisymmetric. In the second type, the vortex centerline deforms into a spiral without any appreciable growth in core size. An important feature of vortex breakdown is that the axial flow, which is necessary for the breakdown, decelerates along the vortex axis.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
Journal of Vortex Science and technology is one of the iconic journals in the study of Vortex breakdown. The manuscripts published in this journal are current research in the form of original research and review. All published articles are permanently archived and available at OMICS Group website in HTML, Digital, Audio and PDF formats. The articles published in this journal are indexed in Media Finder, Journal Seek and Google Scholar.
OMICS, being one of the international icons has been expanding publication services by acquiring different reputed journals from many prestigious publishers worldwide. It has resulted into a repository of 700+ peer-reviewed journals with the efforts and assistance of 50,000+ editorial board members running smoothly with exceptional quality. OMICS has been organizing more than 3000+ International Scientific Conferences every year providing a platform to scientific community across the globe.
