Abstract. A free surface flow over a step is calculated analytically. The flow is assumed to be steady, two dimensional and irrotational. The liquid is treated as inviscid and incompressible. The effects of gravity and surface tension are not taken into account. We use the method of the free streamline theory based on the hodograph method and Schwartz-Christoffel transformation technique to obtain the exact solution.
