NACA 2408 Comparative results.
I'm currently running some simulations on an NACA 2408 airfoil for my final year project. I'm looking at incompressible flow and the main forces I'm concerned with are Lift and Drag. However, I haven't been able to find any published data for an NACA 2408 airfoil or hydrofoil. Does anyone know where I might be able to find any? This may be a silly question but would I be able to use published data from say a 2412 foil and compare it to the results obtained through the simulation? I'm running simulations and, while the graphs for Lift and Drag look ok to me, I've very little experience with CFD so they could be completely wrong.

Thanks in advance.
