dc.description.abstractApplications of the vortex have been used in engineering for many years. Since the recent publication of Rudolph Hilsch's work in Germany it is widely known that there is a transfer of energy from the center to the outside of a vortex in an actual gas. However, there is no theory which satisfactorily explains this transfer of energy in a vortex. In this investigation, an effort was made to determine the characteristics of a vertex in an actual gas, the vortex being formed inside a pipe by the introduction of air tangent to the inside wall of the pipe.en_US
