Hi there, still learning here. I have a small question where how do I connect all the points with a line? I can't seem to get it even after using different functions.
Any help is greatly appreaciated!
c = 0.2;
Re = 386639;
V = 27.78;
b = 0.8:0.02:1.2;
alpha_Lmax = 17.2;
alpha_Lzero = -4.3;
C_lmax = 1.508306;
C_lzero = 0.4527213;
c_d0 = 0.01188282;
rho_0 = 1.225;
rho = 1.202;
R = 287.057;
mew_0 = 1.789e-5;
mew = 1.7284e-5;
alpha = 0;
v = 1.4370e-5;
a_airfoil = C_lmax/(alpha_Lmax-alpha_Lzero);
for i = 1:length (b)
a_wing = a_airfoil/(1+(57.3*a_airfoil)/(pi*0.7*(b(i)/c)));
C_L = a_wing*(alpha-alpha_Lzero);
L = 0.5*rho*(V^2)*b(i)*c*C_L;
C_Di = (C_L^2)/(pi*0.7*(b(i)/c));
C_D = c_d0 + C_Di;
ratio = C_L/C_D;
plot (b(i),ratio,'x')
hold on
end
grid on
xlabel('Span (m)')
ylabel('CL/CD')
title('CL/CD vs Span')

Store the ratio in an array:
%rest of your code
ratio=zeros(size(b));
for i=length(b)
%rest of your code
ratio(i) = C_L/C_D;
end
plot(b,ratio,'-x')
