  • Content Description: Report presenting testing on the NACA 16-009 airfoil and on eight airfoils of the NACA 6A series, which shows that the chordwise loading due to lift at a Mach number of 1.0 is insignificantly affected by thickness distribution within the range of airfoil shapes presented and only slightly affected by thickness. Results regarding the experimental loading on symmetrical airfoils, method of estimating pressure distribution, experimental loadings on cambered airfoils, and scope of method are provided.
