Theoretical and experimental data for a number of NACA 6A-series airfoil sections

Loftin, Laurence K , Jr

The NACA 6a-series airfoil sections were designed to eliminate the trailing-edge cusp which is characteristic of the NACA 6a-series sections. Theoretical data are presented for NACA 6a-series basic thickness forms having the position of minimum pressure of 30, 40, and 50 percent chord and with thickness ratios varying from 6 percent to 15 percent. Also presented are data for a mean line designed to maintain straight sides on the cambered sections.
