Numerical Study of the Dynamics of a Cyclone Modeled by a Vertical Vorticity Vector Considering a Radial Velocity as a Function of Time

In this article, the work carried out is a numerical study of the dynamics of a cyclone modeled by a vertical vorticity vector by considering a radial velocity as a function of time t. We made a short general study on cyclones by modeling a vertical cyclone starting from the Navier-Stokes equations. A study of the vorticity as a function of the radius and as a function of the radial abscissa at different times has been made. We also studied the radial and ortho radial components of the velocity as a function of the radius and as a function of the radial abscissa by varying the Ekman number and the Rossby number by looking at their impacts when they are increased or they are reduced. In the same dynamics, the influence of the decrease in the suction speed over time on the radius of the vortex core has been studied. In short, we have studied the effects of the variation of the radial velocity as a function of time. We ended our study by showing that the Ekman number is the most important parameter in the dynamics of the cyclone, by showing the relationship that exists between the Ekman number and the growth of the rotational motion of a cyclone.
