Velocity potential, stream function in two-dimensional incompressible flow,

governing equations for irrotational, incompressible flow, Laplace?s equation.

Adding elementary flows, flow around a cylinder.

Equations governing the boundary layer for a steady, two-dimensional,

incompressible flow.

Laminar boundary layer.

Turbulent boundary layer.

Turbulence characteristics, boundary-layer transition.

Two-dimensional, incompressible flow around thin airfoil.

Thin-airfoil theory.

Cambered airfoil.

Incompressible flow around unswept wings of finite span.

Vortex system, trailing vortices and downwash, vortex-inducted drag.

Lift on the wing, Prandtl?s lifting theory.
