This lesson covers the concept of Small Disturbance Potential Theory, a crucial aspect of aerodynamics. It delves into the mathematical equations that govern this theory, explaining each term and its significance. The lesson also discusses the assumptions made in this theory, such as the small disturbance assumption and the thin aerofoil assumption. It further explains how these equations are simplified into linear equations for ease of use. The lesson also touches on the boundary conditions and how they affect the equations. For instance, it explains how the thickness of an aerofoil doesn't contribute to lift, and how pressure and velocity must be continuous off the body.
