The method using the properties of analytical functions is applied to a plane, steady, inviscid, everywhere subsonic flow. From data fixed a priori concerning the external flow and some details of the profile, the hodograph is obtained as an analytical function whose real part is known on a contour. The set of imposed conditions being in general superabundant, the proposed Mach number distribution is corrected by means of a function whose form is fixed a priori, or rejected altogether. The problem is treated on a graphic display console connected with a computer, which provides also the profile corresponding to the calculated hodograph.
