A new method of finding the airfoil contour to support a given pressure distribution is given. this method differs with those of lighthill and thwaites. it consists in representing an airfoil contour by a class of functions called degner functions the coefficients of this expension are then obtained by the method of optimisation which minimises the cumulative error defined as the integral of the square of the difference between given and calculated pressures over the domain.
