Matlab files for Figures 9, 10 and 11 of journal paper "The leading-edge vortex of yacht sails" of article in press in Ocean Engineering. All velocity values to be normalised with Ufreestream = 0.114 m/s, x and y data in mm.
1) Fig9_Averaged_Flow_Fields data set contains the averaged velocity fields of planes A, B and C in x,y,u,v format (117649 rows, 1 column or a 343x343 matrix). 2) Fig10_Fig11_Instantaneous_Flow_Fields data set contains the instantaneous velocity fields of planes A, B and C in x,y,u,v format (117649 rows, 306 columns or a 343x343x306 matrix). 3) Fig10_Fig11_Gamma2_Contours contains the Gamma2 contours and the subtracted flow field for planes A, B and C, presented in Fig 10 and Fig 11. An additional XY dataset is provided for providing a reference plane. 4) Supplementary material in PDF format for Derivation_of_kappa. 5) Supplementary material in PDF format for Gamma2contours used for kappas used in Fig12. 6) Supplementary material in PDF.format for Fig12 calculated values
