February 1949


In order to facilitate the application of miscellaneous arifoil data to the problems of the helicopter design, a discussion of a number of the problems most frequently arising is presented. A reference list of published papers on airfoil section characteristics (or their application) which experience has shown to be useful in connection with these helicopter problems is included.
