T. Akhtar, M. Mushtaq, G. Muhammad, Y. N. Anjam, R. Hussain


In this research paper, a direct boundary element method is used to calculate ideal flow (i.e. pressure distribution) over the surface of a Joukowski Aerofoil with linear element approach.  The method has been implemented on the computer. The output given by this computational method is very close as the analytical result attained for two–dimensional body i.e. Joukowski Aerofoil.
