"Panel methods have become standard aerodynamic tool in industry and most research laboratories since the late 1960s due to their accuracy and simplicity for implementation [1]. Actually, solving the potential flow problem numerically using the source and vortex panel techniques has caused revolution to the analysis of low-speed flows. As graduate students in aerodynamics, it should be compulsory to familarize ourselves with the fundamentals of these classical methods.

To this end, in this course project, we are asked to implement the source panel method to solve the flow past non-lifting bodies of various shapes. The live script shows all the tasks of this project, including derivation, programming, computation, and presentation."
