Hi, I am trying to achieve a similar plot as shown on the cover of 'Anisotropic plates: Lekhnitskii'http://www.amazon.com/Anisotropic-Plates-S-Lekhnitskii/dp/0677206704 I have plotted the data using simple polar plot no problem but they vanish to a point. A scale factor would just enlarge everything but leave it as it is, its for visualization purpose mostly as I can get the actual figures from the data.
Sorry for the late response, thanks for your help so far but unfortunately I managed to delete some of my dissertation files by accident from my usb including the matlab code. I have rewritten it but only the calculation parts and up to the standard polar plot so I cant include any useful code for this purpose and will have to delay it to make up for the time lost redoing some of my work.
I had done part of the solution and it was only a matter of extending it and I would have finished and posted the final code but here is what I had done in my notes:
This is fairly simple to implement so I wont ask you guys to do it for me, I just hoped it had been done before or their was a quick way of doing it.
