Consider a single horseshoe vortex of span
i
b centered on the origin of the coordinate system,
0
,
0
,
y
x
, in the z=0 plane as shown below in a view from above the wing.
The strength of the vortex
is
i
.
What is the induced velocity at a point
j
j

x
y

, in the z=0 plane?
It may be handy to write the answer in terms of
i
A
sin
,
i
B
sin
,
i
A
cos
, and
i
B
cos
, and then list what
these four trig functions are in terms of
j

You can assume that the point
j
j
y
x
,
is not on
the head of the horseshoe vortex.
The induced velocity at
j
j
y

,
is the sum of induced velocities from the three parts of the
horseshoe vortex:
