Exploratory investigation of an airfoil with area suction applied to a porous, round trailing edge fitted with a lift-control vane
Description: Report presenting a two-dimensional wind-tunnel investigation of the effectiveness of area suction near the trailing edge for increasing the lift of an NACA 65(sub 1)-012 airfoil modified to incorporate a porous, round trailing edge. The modified section had a thickness-chord ratio of 0.16 and a thin, small chord vane on the round trailing edge. Results regarding the model with vane, model without vane, model with faired vane, control surface, and comparison with similar lift-control devices are provided.
