The work is aimed at a detailed study of large-scale helical vortex structures emerging in a high turbulent intensively swirling flow. It was shown that the vortex formed in the chamber by installing diaphragm with shifted outlet is folded into a single-helical vortex. The flow visualization shows that although the vortex axis performs slow oscillations (precession), on average this structure is fixed in space. The velocity fields were measured with the aid of a nonintrusive method of flow diagnostics (PIV). Verification of the calculation results obtained using a LES simulation was performed based on measured experimental data to confirm the correctness of the chosen mathematical modelling approach. It has been asserted that the investigated regimes are in a self-similarity area relative to Reynolds number.
