Hi guys! Kinda stuck here..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm trying to plot the temporal temperature distribution across a metal rod of length 1 meter. The rod is heated at one end and the temperature is measured every 5 cm along the meter rod every 10 minutes for an hour.

Basically I have 6 text files, each containing 20 temperature values. This will go on the z-axis.

Then I have a vector y = [0:5:100]; for the position along the rod. Then I have another vector t containing the times at which i measured the temperature.

So far I've used the load command to read in the data from the text files into 6 vectors. And I have the "position" vector y = [0:5:100]; . I'm not sure how to make this into a three dimensional plot though, I'm very new to matlab.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Max
