Paper Abstract

The governing equations of 2D velocity and stream function expanded in general curvilinear coordinates base don tensor calculus are attained. The numerical algorithms of covariant, anti-covariant metric tensor and Christoffel symbols of the first and second kinds are described in this paper. This method could be extended readily to arbitrary stream surfaces.
