The effect of Reynolds number on the stalling characteristics and pressure distributions of four moderately thin airfoil sections
Description: Report presenting low-speed measurements of the lift, drag, pitching moment, and pressure distribution of 4 airfoil sections over a range of Reynolds numbers. Results indicated that the nature of the stalls depends on the Reynolds number. Low Reynolds numbers tend to be favorable to the thin-airfoil type of stall while high Reynolds numbers are favorable to to the leading-edge type of stall.
