Exact or analytical solutions for flows about airfoils displaying certain prescribed features may require a special program incorporating many different features. To avoid unnecessary labor and simplify a much abused background of traditional exact airfoils, the report presents a general mapping procedure and account of the supporting theory. Special features needed for a computer program and to describe limiting behavior are included for zero trailing-edge angle. In addition, a capability for generating exact solutions in the presence of an isolated external vortex simulating a slat is described and illustrated briefly.
