How Does a Bore Evacuator Work?

It's the thick ring in the middle of the barrel of a modern battle tank. I know it's supposed to prevent cortdite fumes from being blown back and filling the turret with smoke. But how does it work?

Here's the link for a .pdf that explains the concept in excruciating detail.

Since it's a .pdf, you have to right click and "Save target as..." to download it for viewing.

No the equations were all right.
I had my physics prof check them in my last exam...

Trivia Question

OK, for you tank trivia guys. What production tank (or prototype)
carried the first bore evacuator?

I don't know the answer to this yet, but I'm pretty sure no WWII
tanks carried a bore evacuator. However, they were in use on
the M-60 tanks so sometime between 1945 and 1960 they showed up.

I also recall these devices being called "fume extractors" as
well. Did the name change at some point or are they interchangable?
Or are they two similar yet different devices?

Now that is an answer. Short and to the point yet humorous.
