Tom A is on a distinguished road
Does anyone know how to compute the coefficients for the thickness distribution equations for NACA 4 and 5 series equations? There is an explanation of how on this site:

But I still cannot figure out how to calculate them. I want to make my own code for generating the geometry which I can then use to test the foils in fluent. I do not want to just use other generators or codes because I need to make extensive modifications to the foil shapes and see how it affects performance.
