Looking for Cl curves for known wing geometries

Looking for Cl curves for known wing geometries

Looking for Cl curves for known wing geometries

(OP)
I am developing a program to calculate 3D wing's lift using potential flow theories. In order to validate the program's result I am looking for known values of Cl for any known geometry of wing.

I would apretiate if anybody can indicate me a place where I can find this information.

Thanks.

RE: Looking for Cl curves for known wing geometries

aren't 3D wing lift curves derived from 2D data ?

RE: Looking for Cl curves for known wing geometries

Hi Claphx00:

Try with NACA TN-1270 . It include several wings aerodynamic characteristics with aspect ratios 8,10 and 12
and wing taper ratio of 2.5 and 3.5. NR between 1.500.000 and 7.000.000

Cheers

Mohr, 100% what I was looking for. Thanks and regards.

rb1957, you could calculate a 3D wings since 2D data. In this case I am modeling the wing with potential flow singularities, a different theory.

Regards
