how can i plot an airfoil with rounded trailing edge?

10 views (last 30 days)
hello everyone, i am trying to plot NACA 0012 airfoil in matlab with rounded trailing edge. To make the trailing edge round, i am trying to put semi ellipse at the end of the airfoil but that's not working. The ellipse is not attaching with the airfoil completely. I want the code to be generic because later i have to morph the TE for analysis. so when i morph the TE, the ellipse moves with it.
any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Maybe you can just add a point or two to round the end off. I assume that you are getting your data from "", so you can just put a point or two just before the tailing edge to round it off.
