    Abstract

    The inviscid flow past a BGK-1, NACA0012 amp; NACA0006 airfoils at a few subsonc Mach numbers amp; incidence, is computed by twe Full Potential Codes - one developed in this Divsiion which is an improvement over the basic code developed by Le Carlson (NAL SOF 0008) amp; the other. a BGKcode, (NAL SOF 0005) and the Euler code, for the 'free air' case and compared. An assessment of the capabilities of these codes, the computing times amp; hence, their appropriateness for any particular case as defined by the airfoil, Mach number and incidence, is made in this study
