The characteristics of 78 related airfoil sections from tests in the variable-density wind tunnel

Jacobs, Eastman N Ward, Kenneth E Pinkerton, Robert M

An investigation of a large group of related airfoils was made in the NACA variable-density wind tunnel at a large value of the Reynolds number. The tests were made to provide data that may be directly employed for a rational choice of the most suitable airfoil section for a given application. The variation of the aerodynamic characteristics with variations in thickness and mean-line form were systematically studied. (author)
