A theoretical overview of local flow models such as hyperbolic point flows or localized vorticity structures is presented. Vortex layers and tubes are particularly emphazised. Various exact Navier-Stokes or Euler solutions are introduced to analyse generic features of vorticity dynamics: vorticity gradients, vorticity stretching, interplay between axial and azimuthal vorticity, effect of a large scale strain rate or the existence of a helical symmetry. The linear stability of some of these basic flows is considered.
