1994ApJ...428..483P FLAT ROTATION CURVES: A RESULT OF THE HELICAL INVERSE CASCADE IN TURBULENT MEDIA? R. D. PRABHU AND V. KRISHAN Received 1993 February 26; accepted 1993 December 20 ABSTRACT We have modeled the rotation curves of 21 galaxies observed by Amram et al. (1992), by combining the effects of rigid rotation, gravity, and turbulence. The main motivation behind such modeling is to study the formation of coherent structures in turbulent media and explore its role in the large-scale structures of the universe. The values of the parameters such as mass, turbulent velocity, and angular velocity derived from the rotation curve fits are in good agreement with those derived from the prevalent models. Subject headings: galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - hydrodynamics - turbulence
