Experimental Investigation of Laminar-Boundary-Layer Control on an Airfoil Section Equipped With Suction Slots Located at Discontinuities in the Surface Pressure Distribution
Description: Memorandum presenting an experimental investigation of a two-dimensional, 6.6-percent-thick, 6-foot-chord airfoil section equipped with suction slots for laminar-boundary-layer control. The section was designed to have favorable pressure gradients between the suction slots. The laminar boundary layer on the airfoil had the same extreme sensitivity to minute details of the model surface condition as has been found in other investigations.
