Airfoil DATA for NACA4418

I'm working on a project about plasma actuators placed on a wing tip. For that, I'm looking for the airfoil data (points) for the NACA4418 profile. I already have these points but these are not enough to model accurately the wing section. Has anyone any idea to know how i can do to have more points ? Thanks !

hellow,Gilles you can get your airfoil data (x,y) coordinates using this link: but i think you have to install java on your computer. have nice, ali

I use the spline fitting in matlab to fit splines to the top and bottom half of the airfoil and then use that to cluster or increase the number of points.

I'm university student

so, I like to me send me experomental data for lift

cofficient and monent cofficient about the quarter-chord

point & experimental data for profile drage cofficienst

and moment cofficient about NACA4418, NACA 0008, NACA 0012

Those just use to if you send me that I will

be appreciation

Thank you
