At the close of World Warl II, Allied scientists screening German technical papers reported the results of an experiment performed on basically a free vortex. This experiment was carried on by a German physicist, Rudolph Hilsch, in which he reported wide variations in total temperatures. This phenomena of total temperature variations is not in accord with classical free vortex theory.
