An extremely simple computational method is established for obtaining circulatory flows around given bodies to a high degree of accuracy for flows satisfying the linear pressure and specific-volume equation of state. The method depends not on an integral equation but on the transformation from the hodograph to the physical plane involving the determination of an arbitrary analytic function.
