Improvements of the potential flow aerodynamic model for determining the pressure distribution on lifting surfaces are considered. A method of Fourier transforms is used to determine the Kernel function which relates the pressure to the (prescribed) downwash within the framework of the previously described shear flow model intended to allow for the effects of an aerodynamic boundary layer which is, of course, neglected in the potential flow model.
