Supersonic vortex rings

  1. Jun 9, 2010 #1
    After a bit of searching of scholarly text and investigations I have found myself unable to find the next piece of information.
    Can there exist a vortex ring which travels at supersonic speeds? Not as in the airflow within the vortex ring, there was a paper I was able to acquire about that particular situation, but rather the vortex ring itself as it moves throught the air. I'm currently interested in this because I am studying the detonation of fuel-air mixtures vortex rings and I wanted to know if they could result in a supersonic ring.
