Abstract:

A method is presented for improving the linearized solution for the flow near the tips and wake edges of a lifting wing in incompressible flow, mainly with a view to its more effective utilization in the calculation of the rolling up of the trailing vortex wake. The treatment takes account of the actual or, in the case of the wake, effective radius of the edge by the method of matched asymptotic expansions. The result is presented as an integral for the perturbation potential which is uniformly valid to first approximation in all parts of the flow field about the wing and close behind the trailing edge.
