Consideration is given to a class of inviscid free surface flows where the free surface is of finite length and the pressure on the free boundary is different from the free stream pressure. The study is aimed at determining the shape of the free surface as a function of the velocity ratio parameter. A mapping technique is used to obtain13; exact solutions for a class of free-boundary problems. An infinite system of coupled nonlinear equations is formulated for the coefficients in the mapping function. It is found that the system can be solved exactly, and the solution can be written in simple closed form.
