With this tool you can import an aerofoil geometry that has been constructed
elsewhere. The required input
for the process is the name of the section file containing the coordinates of the aerofoil
that you have already produced. This should be an ASCII data file with the
extension ".dat" or ".txt". The section will be stored in "the shed" for
later use in the wind tunnel.
Must contain number of surface data points supplied on line 2
Section surface data points (meters) are listed as X,Y cordinates, starting at trailing edge and running counter-clockwise around section back to trailing edge. The file format must be identical to that produced by the NACA milling machine otherwise it will not suit the balance mounting system and cannot be installed into the tunnel.
