Force and moment on a Joukowski profile in the presence of point vortices. (English) Zbl 0824.76009
Summary: We present closed-form expressions for the force and moment on a Joukowski profile in arbitrary motion, surrounded by point vortices that are free to convect with the local flow. Thus, rapid and accurate calculation of force and moment in ideal flow simulations is facilitated.
