mathematical swirls, spirals

I am looking for mathematical equations for what would be outward growing
spiral in 2D but for N-dimensional spaces. So in 3D space the equations
would have to make a path through 3D space that expands outward while being
fairly evenly distributed near a growing bounding sphere's surface. I need
the same for ND spaces as well.
Failing this, is there a equation for a spiral like path that evenly winds
itself over an ND hypersphere's surface of a specified diameter without
repeating any point?
