What is it about?
The method is able to predict the performance of a wing with finite span and no sweep. It can be applied from attached to completely detached flow conditions. The prediction of the flow features and forces cofficients with time are provided by the method (flapping wing motion for example).

Why is it important?
The gain in computation time obtained by the method, which is particularly important for engineering issues. In this work, the three-dimensional effects on the lift coefficient curve versus angle-of-attack for a completely detached wing are established.
