Decay of a potential vortex in a fluid of Maxwellian type. (English)

Authors: Ciumasu S.G., Vieru D., Fetecau C.


The velocity field corresponding to a potential vortex in an incompressible fluid of Maxwellian type is determined by means of the Hankel transform. The similar solution for a Newtonian fluid appears as a limiting case of our solution.
