Abstract:

Several general formulas relating aerodynamic forces and moments acting on finite solid bodies immersed in a fluid to the time-variation of vorticity-moment integrals are presented. The formulas are valid for two-and three-dimensional flows and are shown to form a theory for aerodynamic forces and moments which encompasses much of the existing aerodynamic theories. Author
