*This* is the 3rd MATLAB App in the Virtual Thermal/Fluid Lab series.
This MATLAB App allows you to:
1. Visualize elementary potential flows including:
a. Uniform flow
b. Source
c. Sink
d. Vortex
e. Doublet
2. Combine different potential flows to create:
a. Flow past a cylinder
b. Spiral vortex
c. Many more
3. Learn computation of velocity potential and stream function
4. Look at the GUI source code and see how it is created
