Abstract:

An idealized model of a two dimensional ground effect machine in forward motion is treated theoretically. Ideal potential flow is assumed and the Schwartz-Christoffel transformation is used to obtain the flow equations. A symmetrical model about the mid-point is assumed with jets tilted inward.
