Potential Flow and Slightly Viscous Flow
The goal of this chapter is to present a deeper study of the relationship between viscous and nonviscous flows. We begin with a more detailed study of inviscid irrotational flows, i.e., potential flows. Then we go on to study boundary layers, where the main difference between slightly viscous and inviscid flows originates.
