A non-linear theory for the treatment of two-dimensional aerofoils and annular aerofoils, or ducts, has been developed. It is based on surface distribution of vorticity on the actual aerofoil and its application to various aerofoils has proved satisfactory. Indication as to how the problem of interaction of the duct and the propeller may be effectively treated are made, and a discussion of the still existing problem in ducted propeller applications, and proposals for their solution is provided. Possible extensions of the theory for the solution of a variety of problems are summarized. All this has been done for the benefit of future research in the field.
