Interference effects of longitudinal flat plates on low-drag airfoils

Description: Three airfoils were tested with an intersecting flat plate normal to the span as a preliminary study of interference effects on airfoils. Small interference effects were noted on the first two airfoils, while larger effects were noted on the NACA 66,2-422 section, which had previously been shown to be unconservative with respect to separation. Airfoils known to be conservative should be used for inboard sections subject to nacelle and fuselage interference.

Investigation of the Variation of Lift Coefficient With Reynolds Number at a Moderate Angle of Attack on a Low-Drag Airfoil

Description: Bulletin presenting an investigation of the boundary layer about the NACA 66,2-216, a = 0.6 airfoil section in the two-dimensional low-turbulence tunnel. The primary purpose was to find an explanation for the decreased slope of the lift curve observed for some of the low-drag sections outside the low-drag range at low Reynolds numbers.
