Rotationally symmetric quasi-cylindrical viscous incompressible vortex flows have been computed with different initial profiles and for a wide variety of swirl parameters and external axial velocity and circulation gradients. The computational method uses exponentials in the approximating functions for axial velocity and circulation profiles and for weighting functions. Several singular values of the swirl parameter S are identified, the most important being S and S which divide stable from stagnating, and supercritical from subcritical vortex flow, respectively.
