With this tool you can import an aerofoil geometry that has been constructed in the UIUC data format. The required input for the process is the name of the section file containing the coordinates of the UIUC aerofoil that you have downloaded. This should be an ASCII data file with the extension ".dat". The section will be constucted in SNR format and stored in "the shed" for later use in the wind tunnel.

Sample of Required Format :
