Integral equation describing the velocity field of irrotational flows around blunt bodies
Abstract
An integral equation which characterizes the velocity of the stationary flow around blunt bodies is derived. The flow is assumed irrotational, i.e. only such discontinuity surfaces occur for which this assumption remains valid. The behavior of the integral equation at such a discontinuity surface is discussed. The solution of the equation is shown similar to the solution of a wall flow equation.
