Abstract : Results of tests with hydrofoils, conducted by the NACA, are analyzed and it is found that the profile drag of hydrofoils agrees very closely with wind-tunnel measurements of the same sections. An approximate method is employed in order to reduce the measured drag to pure profile drag. The range of applicability of this method is discussed. (Author)
