INTRODUCiION

The wing sections most commonly used in this country are the Clark Y, Clark Y-15,
Gottingen G-387, G-398, G-436, N. A. C. A. M-6, M-12, Navy N-9, N-10, N22, R. A. F.-15,
Sloane, U.S. A.-27, U. S. A.-35A, U.S. A.-35B. Data were obtained from References 1 h 14
on aII of these airfoils that had been tedad in the foIIowing wind tunneIs:
- Large wind tunneI, GtMngen Laboratory.
Variable density wind tunnel, Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory.
7j4-foot wind tunnel, Massachusetts Tnstitute of Technology.
5-foot wind tunneI, McCook Field.
8-by-8-foot wind tunnel, Waahkgton Navy Yard.
Some of the airfoils selected had been tested in as many as four of the five tunnels, others
in only one of the tunneIs.
The rewdts obtained in the different Laboratories are not directly comparable, because of
the dtierencee in the methods of testing; in the ordinates, size, and aspect ratio of the models
tested and in the test speed. The purpose of this report is not to compare results from diilerent
laboratories but to present the data in a uniform manner and to compare different wing sections
tested in the same laboratory at the same ReynoIds Number.
In the individual laborato~ reports, the data in some cases were presented in engineering
rather thaa absolute coefficients; in most cases, the tunneI wall interference cmrections had
not been applied; for some tests the center of pressure had not been determined; the moment
coefficient was given with respect to various uss; the data were presented by some Iaboratories
in polar diagrams and by others in aagIe-of-attack graphs.
In the present report the collected data have been corrected for tunneI wtdl interference,
the absolute system of coefficients is used, and the data are plotted and tabuIatsd in various
forms for the convenience of the engineer.

TUNNEL WALL INTERFERENCE

CORRECTIONS

A large share of the data taken from References 1 to 14-hnd not been correctod for tunnel
wall interference. The following Prandtl corrections have been applied where necessary:

A is the cross-sectional tunnel area and 8 is equal to 0.125 for a tunnel having a circular cross
section. For a tunnel of square crose section, Glauert has shown that 8 increases ta 0.137.
ORDINATES

OF THE AIRFOILS

Table I gives the general shape. of the various. wing sections. The faked ordinates used
by the Bureau of Aeronautics have been given and are called the specified ordinates. These
ordinates may be slightly different from those in general use as exact specifications for the
various sections do not exist. For this reason, awing section atone laboratory might be expected
to vary to some extent from the same section at another laboratory. The variation becomes
greater in the measured ordinates due to the different materkds used in airfoil construction and
different methods of measuring the ordinates.
The maximum thickness of the airfoils and their thickness for front and rear spar depths are
given in Table H.. - Since theipar depths for a wing to be sekcted are approximatdy known, a
glance at-this t-ablewill li& the number of wings for further consideration.
TEST CONDITIONS

No attempt will be made in this report to describo the various wind tunnels or their methods
of testing. Only the conditions for the tests selected wilJbe given.
The Gottingen Laboratory testi were made on 20 by 100 centimeter (7.874X 39.37 inches)
models at a test speed of 3(I meters (98,4 feet) per second. This gives a teat W of 64.58 square
feet per second, where Z is taken ae the chord length. Since the elements of air density and
viscosity were not determined, the exact Reynolds Number of the tests is not known. Assuming
air of standard density p and the coefficient of viscosity p at standard temperature, pl,u= 6,378
sq.ft.fsec., and the approximate Reynolds hTumberp Vi!/pis 412,000.
The Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laborfitory (L. M. A. L.) tests were made on 5 by
30 inch models at a test speed of approximately 76 feet per second. Tests on most of themodels
were made at several pressures, but only the tests .at a pressure of nbout 20 atmospheres are
considered here. The average Reynolds Number for eaoh test was determined and is in the
neighborhood of 3,600,000 corresponding to full-scale conditions.

COLLECTION OF WI.ND-TUNNEL DATA ON COWONLY

USED WING SECTIONS

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M. L T.] tests were made on 6 by 36 inch
modek at a test speed of 40 miks an hour. The test Vi is 29.33 sq. ft./see.; approximate
Reynolds Number, 187,000.
The .McCook FkM (McC. F.) tests were made on 6 by 36 inch models at various air speeds.
Only the tests at 80 miles an hour are considered here, giving a test VZof 58.67 sq. ft,lsec.;
approximate Reynolds Number, 374,000.
The Washington Navy Yard (W. N. Y.) tests were made on 5 by 30 inch modeLsat a test.
speed of 40 nib an hour; test VZ,24.44 eq. ft./see.; approximate ReynoIds Number, 156,000.
With the exception of the G6ttingen airfoils of aspect ratio 5, all of the models had the .
normal aspect ratio of 6. The experimental results of the G?Mingen t-eatscould be corrected
to an aspect ratio of 6, but since the results from the diRerent laboratories are not direct~y
comparable, it was though~ best to leave the data in the origid form.

OF DATA

The data from the GWtingen tests are g@n separately for each airfoil in Tables HI to VI;
L. M. A. L. t-tit Tables VII to XIV; M. I. T. tests, Tables XV to XCH; McC. F. tests,
Tables XXIII to XXV; W. N. Y. tests, Tables XXVI to XXXVII.
The usual CL, CD, and CJC= versus angle of attack curves for the 15 wing sections are
presented in F~~
I to 15, and a table is inserted on each figure giving the test conditions.
It might have been preferable to have plotted the data hm each laboratory in one figure but
this was not practical on account of the interference in the numerous curves.
In Figures 16 to 30 are plott~d the lXlienthal polar diagrams, CDand C= versus CL,togethm
with the induced dr~~ poIar curves.
_
CJCD is replotted against speed ratio ViV. in Figures 31 to 45. The centeroi pr-nre k
rilso plotted against speed ratio as the curves are approximately straight lines and are easier to
read than the usual plots of center of pr~ure against angle of attack.
Graphs of the profile drag coefficient Cm versus LiftcmfEcient are prcmmted in Figures 46- ~to 50. For theee graphs it was possible to plot the data from each laboratory in one diagram and
therefore the curves in each group are comparable. This same method is followed in Fiires
51 to 55 which give tho ratio of the faired profle drag coefficient to the maximum hft coefficient

CRITERIA

Various characteristic values and criteria for the wing sections derivable from the data and
graphs are tabuIated in Tables XXXVTII to XLIX.
When convenient, the tabulation of the
criteria are made with respect tO the merit of the wing section and a note to that effect is under
the heading to the table.
The above-mentioned tables are seIf-explanatory and derivations of the criteria can be
found ekewhere, but a few brief remarks regarding the meaning of some of the criteria appears
desirable.
C=maximum, Table XLI, is the criterion for minimum speed with a given wing loding or
if the minimum speed is given, it is the criterion for the load which can be carried per unit area of
wing.
The maximum ratio O~C~, Table XLIII, & weIl known as a criterion for airfoil efficiency,
greatest weight carried for a given thrust. It being also a criterion for maximum speed regardless of minimum, flattest glide, and masimum range. The value of CL at ma-xirnnm C~]CDis
ratio of lift to drag. The
also tabulated and should be considered along with the maximum
ratio of lift to drag is given for various fractions of CLmaximum in Table XJJV. These data
show the dleotiveness for speed and climb.
The ratio of CLmaximum to C= minimum, Table XLV, is the criterion for maximum speed
with a given minimum. With constant loading, (C#/O.A) maximum, Table XLVI, is an index
of minimum power, maximum rate of cIimb, maximum ceiling, maximum duration; the ratio
of &3 mfi~
to (?~zminimum, Table 2CGVH, is the criterion for matium
speed range.
For additional detail on the above-mentioned criteria, the reader is referred to Reference 15.

The scaie effeda depend on the airfoii motion and are in generai similar for simiir sections.
AU airfoii amtions may be roughiy divided into three general ulasses as foilows:
(a) The highly cambered or very thiok section having a very high iift at Reynolds Numbers within the
testing range of the average wind tunnel. This class usuaiiy shows a decreas e in CL maximum with increase in
Reynolds Number.
(b) The moderately cambered, medium lift section. This CIFWS
usually has a moderate, and favorabIe
scale sEcct on CL with a fairIy Iow and favorable soaie effect on CD.
(c) The thin, to moderately thick, doubIe cambered aeotiion of low lift at normaI teat Reynolds Numbem.
This dam usually shows a iarge increase in CL maximum and a mcderate deeress in CD minimum with imx~e
in Reynolds Number.

Airfoils such as the G-387 and U. S. A.-35A come in class (a); the R. A. F.15 and C1ark
Yin ckzss (h); the M-6 and M-12 in cIass (c).
USE OF THE DATA

The diagrams and tables enable an engineer to make a logicaI selection of a wing section.
The fuWe.caIedata from the L. hf. A. L. tests should be used whenever possible since freetlight tests have veriiied the vaIidit.y of these data.

Since the scale effect is in general similar for similar sections, it is to be expected that certain
wing sections such as tlm G-39s and N-22 which show up well in an atmospheric tunnel would
have good characteristic at full Reyriol@ Number. .This has been verified by the flight test
data on airplanes with these wing sections.

CONCLUSIONS

Th~ foLIowingconclusions can be drawn from this collection of airfoil data:


Direct comparison of the data should be made only when the Reynokls Numbers of the
tests are the same. True relative values are then obttied at that Reynolds Number.
Allowance for the scaIe effect should be made when the teete are at diflerent Reynolds
Numbers.
The scaIe effect is in general similar for similar airfoil sections.
Test data at high Reynolds Numbers show better accord with free-flight data. Preference
should therefore be given b data from the variable density tunnel.
More winga which show up well in an atmospheric tunnel should be tested at full scale.
It is understood that this is now being done for a group of sections including the G398.
