Abstract

An extension and theoretical underpinning of thin aerofoil theory is given. To enable this requires first a novel mathematical representation for a new matched asymptotic approach. The new matched asymptotic approach is to match near - field Euler flow to a far - field Oseen flow. The novel mathematical representation is a Green's integral for Euler flow. This requires the development of Eulerlets. Once this mathematical representation is achieved, then the Taylor series approximation is applied assuming a thin aerofoil body. The first term in the approximation yields standard thin aerofoil theory, and additionally we give the next three terms in the approximation with their orders of magnitude.
