A modified Lundgren’s model (the LABSRL model) accounting for the effect of surface tension is applied for the description of stationary bathtub vortices in a viscous liquid with a free surface. Laminar liquid flow through the circular bottom orifice is considered in a horizontally unbounded domain with the liquid being assumed to be undisturbed at infinity and approaching to a constant depth. An approximate analytical solution of the LABSRL model is obtained for small-dent vortices. Good agreement is achieved between the constructed analytical and numerical solutions for the same set of parameters.
