NACA profile validation

i have to validate a commercial cfd code for external flows around NACA profiles. But i don't have the faintest idea where to get some experimental data or some previous published validation reports. Can anyone help me with that? thanks!

cheerio Wolfgang

Re: NACA profile validation
just a suggestion, but the NACA-0012 is a symmetrical aerofoil. this is therefore often a good areofoil to use first as when set to zero incidence it should produce a symetrical pattern and no lift.
