Investigation of effects of various camouflage paints and painting procedures on the drag characteristics of an NACA 65(sub 421)-420, a = 1.0 airfoil section

Description: Report presenting an investigation of the effects of various camouflage paints and painting procedures on the drag characteristics of a low-drag airfoil in the two-dimensional low-turbulence pressure tunnel. While applying paint has generally been found to decrease smoothness and increase drag, the care taken in preparation and application of the paint seems to be the dominant influence on the drag. Testing occurred with several different types of paints and several different painting methods.
