This might be seen, for example, in either of two regimes of the fluid
model, in electricity with the skin effect (fringe flow) and water
with surface tension (core flow). Then in a finite element analysis,
through junctions, the idea is to model linear to spiral flow and
back, where the change from linear to spiral flow generates vortices,
that dissipate with conservation of flow, for compressible and non-
compressible fluids.
