Abstract : The second-order problem of Helmholtz flow past lifting hydrofoils and symmetric struts was formulated and solved. The solution involves elementary operations on the known solutions of the first-order problem. The second-order lift and drag coefficients are given in integral form. Results obtained for a flat plate at incidence and a symmetric wedge agree with the exact solutions up to the second order. (Author)
