A correlation of low-speed, airfoil-section stalling characteristics with Reynolds number and airfoil geometry

Donald E. Gault
Mar 1957

The low-speed stalling characteristics of a large number of airfoil sections have been correlated with Reynolds number and a single airfoil ordinate near the leading edge as the correlating parameters. The correlation is appropriate only to airfoils without high-lift devices in flows of very low turbulence and with aerodynamically smooth surfaces.
