AbstractA surface panel method for computing potential flows around a three dimensional body is presented. In it, the potential formulation is used. The integral equation is derived by using Green's second identity and defines the perturbation velocity potential when the Neumanian body boundary condition is introduced. Discretization of the body surface uses flat triangular panels to preserve the surface continuity. Variation of the singularity density functions within a panel is defined in terms of their values at the panel vertices and panel are acoordinates and is continuous over a geometrically continuous body surface. Advantages of the present method are discussed.
