Tests in the variable density wind tunnel to investigate the effects of scale and turbulence on airfoil characteristics

John Stack
Feb 1931

The effect of scale and turbulence on the lift and drag of five airfoils the NACA 0006, the NACA 0021, the Clark Y and the USA 35-A, and the USN PS6, have been investigated in the Variable Density Wind Tunnel of the NACA. Tests were made over a wide scale range for only two different conditions of turbulence.
