I need to plot an airfoil and it is just not looking right

7 views (last 30 days)
It should be easy since I am just plotting the points but it isnt working and this is a little bit beyond my matlab experience
x1 = [.0028 .0139 .0359 .0682 .1102 .1609 .2191 .2837 .3530 .4257 .5000 ...
.5743 .6470 .7163 .7809 .8391 .8898 .9318 .9641 .9861 .9972];
zu1 = [.0064 .0188 .0301 .0399 .0480 .0541 .0580 .0596 .0590 .0566 .0525 ...
.0471 .0410 .0343 .0275 .0209 .0147 .0093 .0050 .0020 .0004];
zl1 = [-.0064 -.0188 -.0301 -.0399 -.0480 -.0541 -.0580 -.0596 -.0590 -.0566 ...
-.0525 -.0471 -.0410 -.0343 -.0275 -.0209 -.0147 -.0093 -.0050 -.0020 -.0004];
ax=plotyy(x1,zl1,x1,zu1)
axis equal
axes(ax(2))
axis ij
When I plot it i get something vaugley wing shaped but its definitely not right.

just curious why you are doing the plotyy?
ax=plot(x1,zl1,x1,zu1)
axis equal
should work just fine unless the y axis on zl1 and zu1 are not the same?
why it didn't look not right is that the y axis (left) and y axis (right) were not on the same scale.

No problem and glad to help! dumb questions are welcome because we all make them. Especially if you've been staring at the same bit of code for ages.
