Hi, i transferred the the NACA 0012 ordinates onto my CFD code and realised that the profile is incomplete. This meaning that at x=1, y is not equal to 0. what should i do to solve this problem?

This is a well-known drawback of NACA 0012. You may close the contour by setting the trailing edge, e.g., at x=1.008 , y=0 .
