Please help

Re: Vortex Methods
As far as I knwow, two good 2D codes are freely available:

- a O(N) code written by P. Koumoutsakos (ETH Zurich) available upon request.

- a documented adaptative code, Blobflow, written By Rossi. There's a site dedicated on it.

I do not remember the sites adresses but they can be easily retrieved.

Re: Vortex Methods
To the best of my knowledge Rossi's BlobFlow is for unbounded flow and does not handle boundaries at this stage (though I'm sure he's working on it)
