Theodorsen's method for calculating the incompressible potential flow past an aerofoil is reviewed. It is found that some simple modifications to the computational process make the computations relatively faster, easier, and more accurate. The new modifications are applicable to the analysis of conventional airfoils with up to moderate thickness and camber ratio. Several examples are presented to show the effectiveness of the modifications.
