Abstract:

A very general method of calculation for incompressible potential flow about arbitrary axisymmetric bodies has been coded for a modern TSS computer system. Potential flow at any angle of attack can be computed with or without suction through the body surface - features which render the meehod of considerable interest for application to such bodies as jet engine nacelles. The coding is of general interest because of its logical arrangement as well as for the procedures used in the calculation of the elliptic integrals and the method of equation solution. The refinements to integrals for the singular elements are new. Author
