UNH-RVAT baseline performance and near-wake measurements

This repository contains the processing and plotting code, as well as the derived data set from the UNH-RVAT tow tank measurements performed in Spring 2013.

Download/usage

To download, use the git clone URL to the right. For example, in a terminal

git clone https://github.com/UNH-CORE/UNH-RVAT-baseline.git

To generate plots, run plot.py with Python or IPython. Also see this IPython notebook for examples.

To reprocess all data, execute python process.py.

To contribute back to the main repository, use GitHub's fork/pull mechanism.

Dependencies

Most dependencies are present in the Anaconda Python Distribution (3.5). To install the rest automatically, run

pip install pytdms pxl>=0.0.9
