ON THE VELOCITY INDUCED BY A VORTEX ELLIPTIC CYLINDER

Exact Analytic expressions are presented of the induced velocity components at any field point due to a single vortex ellipse and due to a vortex elliptic cylinder of uniform strength with a finite and a semi-infinite length. The elliptic cylinder is assumed to deviate very little from the reference circular cylinder. Comparison is made between the derived expressions and those due to a semi-infinite vortex circular cylinder, and sample calculations are presented. This investigation has a direct application to the case of nonaxisymmetric annular aerofoils of elliptic cross sections.
