A class of similarity solutions of the equations for turbulent vortex cores matching an external inviscid similarity flow with a power law of circumferential velocity variationv-r −m near the rotation axis and constant Bernoulli function is considered. Solutions are found to exist only in a certain range of the indexm of the exponential. For each suchm there are two solutions.
