During the course of this thesis work, we will be studying and analyzing one of the first tornado models derived from the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible fluid called the Burgers-Rott model. We will completely present the model and its derivation, but will present this derivation autonomous from the original work. Our goal is to consider all cases of the model, including those which due to physical restrictions do not produce a tornado. In doing so, we will go beyond the original work by using computer simulation to graphically interpret our results.
