airfoil in tecplot
 
Hi all,

I have obtained rseults for incompressible flow over airfoil at angle of attack and I am using Tecplot as a postprocessing tool. In Tecplot, there is provision for including basic geometries like circle, square and ellipse into the plot window. Is there any way to import the coordinates of the airfoil, so that the geometrical shape can be included in the stremline or vorticity contour plot? thanks for your views..

Hi Sudhakar,

You should write a dat file and load it to Tecplot using a reader, I use the Tecplot data loader but I think that you can use any of them, depending of the format of the dat file.

This is a sample of a XY plot type.

TITLE="Simple Data File" VARIABLES="ITERACOES", "RESIDUE" ZONE I= 10 DATAPACKING=POINT

x1 y1

x2 y2

x3 y3

x4 y4

x5 y5

x6 y6

x7 y7

x8 y8

x9 y9

x10 y10

Regards, Ruben
