# On Satisfying the Kutta Condition in Unsteady Thin Aerofoil Theory

@inproceedings{Ramesh2022OnST, title={On Satisfying the Kutta Condition in Unsteady Thin Aerofoil Theory}, author={Kiran Ramesh}, year={2022} }

Unsteady thin-aerofoil theory is a low-order method for solving potential-ﬂow aerodynamics on a camber-line undergoing arbitrary motion. In this method, a Kutta condition must be applied at the trailing edge to uniquely specify the net circulation about the aerofoil. This article provides a critical discussion on applying the Kutta condition in unsteady ﬂows, and introduces an improved method of doing so in unsteady thin-aerofoil theory. Speciﬁ-cally, the shed wake at any discrete time step is…

It is shown here that if Glauert's approach is interpreted in the context of generalised functions, the whole solution can be written as a sine-series, and it is really the coordinate transformation which compels the Kutta condition to be satisfied, as it enhances the edge singularities from integrable to non-integrable, and so sifts out solutions not normally representable by a Fourier series.
