The vortex-in-cell method for the study of three-dimensional vortex structures
The vortex particle method for numerical simulation of the 3D vortex structure evolution was used. Validation of the method was tested for the study of a single vortex ring by comparing the computed translation velocity with the theoretical formula and for the leap-frogging phenomenon for two rings with the same circulation.
