Script that plots streamlines around a circle and around the correspondig Joukowski airfoil.

Updated 31 Oct 2005

Script that plots streamlines around a circle and around the correspondig Joukowski airfoil. It's obviously calculated as a potential flow and show an approximation to the Kutta-Joukowski Lift.

How can I replace the circle with an airfoil of choice?

Suman Nandi

what input values should I put to get optimum result like above picture?

Works great as a simple visualization for Joukowski Airfoils

The Term i*k*log(z) in the function f
%--f = w*(z) + (v*exp(-i*theta)*r^2)./(z-s) + i*k*log(z);

needs to be modified.

%--New f
f = w*(z) + (v*exp(-i*theta)*r^2)./(z-s) + i*k*log(z-s);

hi, I think this is a great program, but am struggling to use it! what values should I input/ change toll to if I want a simple joukowski aerofoil?
thanks!!!

thanks so much

the program only rotates the flow field, a rotation of the airfoil could be added which i did myself

good program

Good to use!

What is there to comment on?

Jürgen Humt

A question rather than a comment:
Why is the radius not calculated such that the circle passes through the point (1,0) like: % r= sqrt((1+s_x)^2+s_y^2); ?

simply to use, nice visualization

Very well done...

good for high lift
