Panel Methods

  • Mrinal KaushikEmail author


The panel methods are the numerical techniques for solving incompressible potential flows over thick two- and three-dimensional geometries by replacing them with mathematical models comprising of sources and vortex panels. The surface to be analyzed will be depicted by the panels consisting of sources and vortices, in turn, these methods are referred to as source panel and vortex panel methods, respectively. In this chapter, we will discuss both source and vortex panel methods along with their applications.
