Fall 2011 Assignment 1: Matlab and Basic Computations Solution Instructor: Trani Problem 1 One of the basic problems in transportation engineering is determining the performance of vehicles traveling between two points. The flight profiles of three domestic flights in the United States are provided as text files in this assignment. A sample file is shown in Figure 1 for a flight between Dallas and New York. a) Import the data (all three flights) using Matlab’s import wizard or sing the Matlab “load” command. b) Create a new Matlab script to do the following: b.1) Create five vectors and label them: time, latitude, longitude, speed and altitude (all 5 columns of the file). These five vectors contain the column data in each file. b.2) Plot time traveled (in x-axis) vs speed (y-axis). Label axes as needed (include units) and change default font sizes to size 16 for both x and y labels. Change the color of the line to solid blue. Comment on the shape of the profile observed. Figure 1. Time vs. Speed for ROA to CLT Flight. b.5) Plot time traveled (in x-axis) vs altitude (y-axis). Label axes and change default font sizes to size 16 for both x and y labels. Change the color of the line to red. Comment on the shape of the profile observed. CEE 3604
