Abstract

A 12% thick NLF airfoil is designed for an unmanned aircraft for reconnaissance and target acguision role. This airfoil is compared with NACA 64/, -612 airfoil of same thickness. NAL airfoil, designated as NAL-NLF-1 2Qr has given better performance than NACA airfoil at the design conditions. For that matter in the entire range 0.4lt;CLlt; 0.8 NAL airfoil performs better than the NACA airfoil.
