Investigation of Extreme Leading-Edge Roughness on Thick Low-Drag Airfoils to Indicate Those Critical to Separation
Description: Bulletin presenting a study of several airfoils, including a conventional NACA 23021 and some low-drag airfoils for which the thickness had been increased, as smooth airfoils and after the application of a standard roughness. The results show some of the airfoils to be critical to separation resulting from such flow disturbances.
