Airfoil 360 Model Functions for Matlab(R) DATE: Feb 2022 AUTHOR: D. Blake Stringer, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Kent State University. Distinguished Visiting Professor of Aeronautics, U.S. Air Force Academy, 2021-22 PURPOSE: This data set provides Matlab models for estimating the lift and drag coefficients of three airfoils at 360-deg angles of attack. The airfoils are the (1) NACA 0012, (2) NACA 2412, and (3) Selig s1210. The models provide estimates for low-speed Reynolds Numbers of 50,000 and 100,000. This data is particularly useful for predicting the performance of vertical-axis wind turbines. ADDITIONAL REFERENCES: Stringer, D., Hartman, P.
