Potential Flow Potential Flow z Potential-flow theory applies in the limiting case of flows that are both incompressible and irrotational, which is not a pathological case… Incompressible flows are very common Vorticity is generally confined to thin “boundary layers” for slender bodies (like wings) so that many flows of engineering interest are irrotational except in small regions z All of the nonlinearity of the basic equations of motion is confined to Bernoulli’s Equation z We will see the direct connection between vorticity and forces that develop on an object
