    A vortex lattice method has been developed to analyse simple, swept, tapered wings with spanta ise segmented flaps at both leading and trailing edges . Classical planar horse shoe vortex is used as the basic solution to the governing Laplace's equation . Compressibility corrections (ire accounted for using Prandil-Glauert analogy modified as applicable to wins with deflected flaps. Extensive numerical experimentation has been carried to detcrinine the optin/um lattice layout. The method has been validated using a number of test cases available in published literature
