Abstract : The patent describes a flueric vortex proportional amplifier having two concentric rings contained between a top plate and a bottom plate with fluid supply inputs providing a source of fluid between the concentric rings. The inner ring is of a porous material construction such that restricted fluid flow through the porous inner ring causes a nearly uniform pressure to be built up between the two rings to assure substantially irrotational radial flow within the chamber formed by the inner porous ring and the top and bottom plates.
