Default Not normalized airfoil
Posts: n/a
Hi all

I am looking for the contour data of a NACA 4415 (X and Y coordinates), but with a chord length different from 1 (not normalized).

So, if I take the common generated points (with chord = 1) and if I scale them in both direction, would it remain a NACA 4415 ? Because I'm not convinced...

Does anyone have any advice?

Scale in both directions by the same amount - the airfoil shape will still match.
