1)
A system of straight line vortex segments is used to represent a swept wing as
shown below. All vortices have the same strength
Γ
, with directions as shown.

Using your vortex segment function written in the last homework write a matlab
code to find the total induced velocity at the three points shown above as a function
of wing angle
θ
. Set
Γ
= 1 and
S=1 and vary
θ
from 10 degrees to 60 degrees. Plot
the induced velocity at these three points as a function of
θ
for these three points.

The span of the foil is 1 meter , the freestream speed U= 8m/s and the density of
the water is 998 kg/m3. The aspect ratio is 3:1.
