The nonchaotic dynamics of three-tori in a real fluid system were analyzed by numerically solving the Navier-Stokes equations in an axisymmetric subspace. It was found that the organizing centers of the dynamics are unstable two-tori states that correspond to different modes of interaction between the end wall layers and the outgoing wall jets.
