Creating Tecplot Format Files From MATLAB Data

Often, the hardest challenge to any project is getting your data into the correct file format and program. This script exemplifies how to create Tecplot format files from MATLAB data imported from simple text files. Included in the file are resources and links to where to find more information.

For this example, open source data from the University of Washington aeronautical senior design wind tunnel test was used as sample input data. The script then writes the data into two different

Tecplot file formats, ASCII/.dat and binary/.plt. In addition, it creates a basic macro to load and save plots as .png images.
