Elementary Aerodynamics



In Chap. 1, we have laid down the governing equations at different hierarchy levels, starting from the Navier–Stokes equation without the limiting Stokes’ hypothesis down to the inviscid, irrotational flow modeled by Laplace’s equation for velocity potential (\(\phi \)) and stream function (\(\psi \)) for 2D flows
