Symmetric NACA Airfoil Lift and Drag Data

My name is Jerid I am new to this blog and fairly new to CFD in general I am a degreed ME and within the last few months I have started to do CFD work.

I am having a very hard time finding lift and drag data for symmetric NACA airfoils, namely NACA 0020, NACA 0021, and NACA 0024. I can find coordinates and geometry everywhere but no lift and drag data.
Please let me know of a website or book to purchase, etc.

This is the classic reference

You can also try looking for old NACA reports via Google.

Thanks, I checked out the book you recommended and it was good for the NACA airfoils from NACA0006 - NACA0012.
For NACA0012 - NACA0025 I found other data after a lot of searching in a Sandia Lab report.

I like to suggest you a great site for any kind of engineering data and problem solving.

Here you get the data of lift coefficient and others for all NACA airfoil series.

Hope it will help you.
