From complex analysis it is known that a holomorphic function can be presented as a Laurent series. Quarterly of Applied Mathematics. Views Read Edit View history. This is known as the Lagally theorem.
With this approach, an explicit and algebraic force formula, taking into account of all causes inner singularities, outside joukowsski and bodies, motion of all singularities and bodies, and vortex production holds individually for each body  with the role of other bodies represented by additional singularities.
Kutta—Joukowski theorem is an inviscid theorybut it is a good approximation for real viscous flow in typical aerodynamic applications. When a mass source is fixed outside the body, a force correction due to this source can be expressed as the product of the strength of outside source and the induced velocity at this source by all joukiwski causes except this source.
Ifthen the stagnation point lies outside the unit circle.
In many text books, the theorem is proved for a circular transformatioon and the Joukowski airfoilbut it holds true for general airfoils. The second is a formal and technical one, requiring basic vector analysis and complex analysis. When the flow is rotational, more complicated theories should be used to derive the lift forces.
Any real fluid is viscous, which implies that the fluid velocity vanishes on the airfoil. The circulation is defined as joukoqski line integral around a closed loop enclosing the airfoil of the component of the velocity of the fluid tangent to the loop. For this type of flow a vortex force line VFL map  can be used to understand the effect of the different vortices in a variety of situations including more situations than starting flow and may be used to improve jouiowski control to enhance or reduce the lift.
Then, the force can be represented as: This vortex production force is proportional to the vortex production rate and the distance between the vortex pair in production. The volume integration of certain flow quantities, transformatio as vorticity moments, is related to forces.
The transformation is named after Russian scientist Nikolai Zhukovsky. When there are free vortices outside of the body, as may be the case for a large number of unsteady flows, the flow is rotational.
Now comes a crucial step: Then the components of the above force are:. Aerodynamics Fluid dynamics Physics theorems. At a large distance from the airfoil, the rotating flow may be regarded as induced by a line vortex with the transformatin line perpendicular to the two-dimensional plane. Hence a force decomposition according to bodies is possible.
Only one step is left to do: Equation 1 is a form of the Kutta—Joukowski theorem.
Kutta–Joukowski theorem – Wikipedia
If the streamlines for a flow around the circle are known, then their images under the mapping will be streamlines for a flow around the Joukowski airfoil, as shown in Joukoaski The kytta relates the lift generated by an airfoil to the speed of the airfoil through the fluid, the density of the fluid and the circulation around the airfoil.
Plugging this back into the Blasius—Chaplygin formula, and performing the integration using the residue theorem:. This transform is also called the Joukowsky transformationthe Joukowski transformthe Zhukovsky transform and other variations. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations.

Kutta and Joukowski kytta that for computing the pressure and lift of a thin airfoil for flow at large Reynolds number and small angle of attack, the flow can be assumed inviscid in the entire region outside the airfoil provided the Kutta condition is imposed.
This induced drag is a pressure drag which has nothing to do with frictional drag.
This article needs additional citations for verification. This material is coordinated with our book Complex Analysis for Mathematics and Engineering.
A lift-producing airfoil either has camber or operates at a positive angle of attack, the angle between the chord line and the fluid flow far upstream of the airfoil. However, the composition functions in Equation must be considered in order to visualize the geometry involved.
The Kutta—Joukowski theorem is a fundamental theorem in aerodynamics used for the calculation of lift of an airfoil and any two-dimensional bodies including circular cylinders translating in a uniform fluid at a constant speed large enough so that the flow seen in the body-fixed frame is steady and unseparated.
So every vector can be represented as a complex numberwith its first component equal to the real part and its second component equal to the imaginary part of the complex number. In aerodynamicsthe transform is used to solve for the two-dimensional potential flow around a class of airfoils known as Joukowsky airfoils.
