Hi guys,
I have a naca 0020 profile (with a structured volume mesh). I need to change the trailing edge profile from being straight into sinusoidal(flipper type). For this i received a .m matlab file. It contains the coding to generate the required shape. Can anyone guide me how to "use" this...

i have attached the matlab file and my icem files for your reference

Are you also working on scripting so that you can automate the complete procedure including blocking? If yes then I would be interested in your work.
