Abstract:

The report presents the results of a test program that was intended to investigate possible improvements in the methods used to predict the suction distribution required to prevent separation of the turbulent boundary layer at high lift coefficients, and provide experimental data on a variable-camber airfoil with distributed-suction boundary-layer control. Two, 2-dimensional wind-tunnel models were tested, and test speeds between 56 and 131 feet per second were used. Model lift and moment data were obtained.
