Document Type: Journal Paper


A survey is given of methods for computing three classes of time-independent incompressible potential flows with free streamlines: (1) plane flows having free boundaries and curved fixed boundaries without gravity; (2) plane flows having free boundaries and straight fixed boundaries with gravity; and (3) axially symmetric flows having free boundaries without gravity.
