This code allows you to parametrize an airfoil shape using PARSEC method, then the code is using Genetic algorithm as an optimizer, you can view:
1- the airfoil before an after parameterization
2- Coefficient of lift change
---------------------------------
the genetic algorithm is coded without using the embedded MATLAB optimizer for faster computation and simpler.
in case you need the GA in a generic format for any application to utilize it please comment and i will upload it.
