Note the doughnut-shaped pattern of low PV outflowing from the position of each storm (located in the center of the doughnut), confirming a nearly axisymmetric outflow from the storm core suggested by satellite observations.

Assuming that the auxiliary electrode is a thin-walled cylindrical electrode with the centre of the inflow electrode, and the radius of the distance between the inflow electrode and the auxiliary electrode, then the finite element model can be simplified as a two-dimensional axisymmetric model.
The classical approaches to the formulation and solving of axisymmetric oscillations of multilayer massive bodies and shells of cylindrical and spherical form are described [3, 4, etc.].
Without loss of generality and for simplification, axisymmetric case is considered.

Let us consider as in [8-14] that, due to the axisymmetric load condition of the drilling device, the circumferential component of the displacement is zero, and the radial component u depends on the radial distance r only correspondingly; the radial and circumferential components of the stresses [[sigma].sub.r] and [[sigma].sub.[theta]] are also r-dependent only.
The collapse test of three-dimensional axisymmetric sand columns was carried out on the basis of the apparatus developed independently, which was made of steel with the inner diameter of 10 cm, the height of 10 cm, and the thickness of 1 cm.
It has been examined by a number of researchers that the area (or entropy) product of various spherically symmetric and axisymmetric BHs are mass-independent (universal) [1-9].
