I want to compute numerically a POTENTIAL STEADY and INCOMPRESSIBLE flow over an airfoil. The set up of the problem is:

[tex] \nabla^2\phi=0[/tex]

[tex]\nabla\phi \cdot \overline{n}\big)_{x=surface}=0[/tex] no normal velocity component on the airfoil surface.

[tex]\nabla \phi=\overline{U_\infty}[/tex] as [tex]x\rightarrow\infty[/tex] external flow at large distances.

The three main questions which arise are the next:

i) Is it possible to obtain an steady solution of this stuff?

ii) Am I going to obtain any Lift force?. Why?

Thanx for participating in this discussion.

Can you offer guidance or do you also need help?
