singularity distribution about panel method
In panel method, is it possible to use a source distribution (uniformly distributed on each panel but different strength at every panel) and linearly varying strength vortex? if possible, how to calculate the influence coefficients? are there any codes available?

Thank you very much!!

Start with the uniform source distribution and calculate the influence coefficient then move to your actual problem.

Comparison of lift coefficient of naca 0012 for different aspect ratio rectang wings
Dear All,

I have written a low order 3d panel method code for lifting surfaces. I have calculated the lift coefficients for different wing configurations. I want to compare my results. Can anyone suggest how can I compare and from where.
