CALCULATION OF THREE DIMENSIONAL POTENTIAL LIFTING FLOWS USING SURFACE VORTICITY DISTRIBUTIONS

A numerical method is proposed for calculating incompressible, lifting flow velocity and pressure distributions around arbitrary three-dimensional bodies. Application of the method has demonstrated that very accurate results can be obtained using sparse computational grids, enabling complex flow fields to be calculated with less computer time and fewer memory requirements than other known methods.
