How do I use matlab to simulate airflow around an airfoil?

19 views (last 30 days)
I'm not sure how to get started. I have the dat file for a Selig 1223 airfoil but I'm not sure how to get started. How would I code a program that can simulate the airflow.

I'm trying to go off of that but I can't get it to show the 2D airfoil simulation. I think the program is too old and its not translating over to the current version of Matlab.
Where do I get started? I just need to code a Selig 1223 airfoil to get the streamlines and velocities at certain points of the airfoil.

Please note that since this is related to a file exchange submission, it is recommended that you contact the author of the submission directly about the usage of the "Potential_Flow_Simulator" function.
