These wing sections, or their derivatives, continue to be the ones most commonly used for airplanes designed for both subsonic and supersonic speeds, and for helicopter rotor blades, propeller blades, and high performance fans.

Intended to be primarily a reference work for engineers and students, the book devotes over pages to theoretical and experimental considerations. The theoretical treatment progresses from elementary considerations to methods used for the design of NACA low-drag airfoils. Methods and data are presented for using wingsection data to predict wing characteristics, and judiciously selected plots and cross-plots of experimental data are presented for readily useful correlation of certain simplifying assumptions made in the analyses.

The chapters on theory of thin wings and airfoils are particularly valuable, as is the complete summary of the NACA’s experimental observations and system of constructing families of airfoils.

I am not disappointed. In two parts, this book has a math beginning and abundant graphical summary of airfoil performance. Starting with Wing-Section characteristics, the forces on airfoils and their response to those forces are covered in 2D, 3D then fluid analysis.

Symbols used in each chapter are identified prior to use. Theoretical treatment is a progression of the developing insight in symbolic approximation from the contributors to understanding aerospace engineering. Many of the equations are represented in graphs so one can grasp it quickly and then proceed with the math.

Even then, the authors provide a quick precis for a perspective on defining solutions. Many times they seek the quick and simple, not simplistic, heads up approach while not flubbing on the math. So, while Theory of Wing Sections is not an introductory text, it is an excellent supplement or toolbox to deliver achievable options along with their performance and limitations. Many designers or engineers dig into the graphical data section to explore well tried airfoils as a prelude to computer firmware analysis which may not divulge the underlying methods a given design is based.

This book takes the mystery out of the meat. To truly ferret through the fundamental concepts here, one should have a working knowledge of calculus prepared to use it. However, one can find use of this work studying the graphical wing section data noting the Reynold’s numbers apply to full size aircraft.

One starts here for UAV model scale aircraft, then digs deeper. One person found this helpful.

Summary of Airfoil Data

Doenhhoff learned aeronautics to the Univ. I acquired almost all the theoretical contents of this book at that moment. This book helped me in recovering my deteriorated memory. Other reviews have said this book is difficult to understand, but that’s probably because they don’t have the background to understand what this book is. That said, I am an Aeronautical Engineer and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and using this book.

In this book, you’ll find all of the ‘classical’ airfoil theory; from basic thin airfoil theory doenhpff flow models and much more.

The best part of this book, however, is the extensive series of airfoil data tables in the back. You can literally find out anything you want about the NACA 4 and 5 digit series airfoils. Having all this data at your fingertips is an aerodynamicists dream. It saves us the trouble of calculating performance characteristics and also serves as a check for most kinds of wing analysis codes you write. I highly recommend this book to any Aero Engineer or Aero student.


You WON’T regret having it! I had this book in college and lost it. It’s a good reference for any airplane designer and yes there is a lot of math but that is a product of aerodynamics and engineering.

Once you understand the graphs you can start building models and drones and possibly the next Canadian fighter jet. This is one of my favorite technical references. Ever since I was a child wings and airfoils absolutely fascinated me. Now, don’t think for a second that this book is only useful to soenhoff engineers.

Anyone dealing with a foil shape traveling through a fluid can find plenty of useful information in this book, if they understand enough about wing sections. I wouldn’t buy this book to learn how to calculate lift, drag, or aerodynamic forces unless you’re very mathematically savvy, as of it’s all explained in a rather dry and theoretical sense.

What is truly of value is the information on all the NACA wing sections and the empirical data they collected, contained in the massive appendices.

I keep this book on hand for it’s comprehensive listing of various airfoils used in the aerospace industry.

It was especially helpful during my capstone course doenhhoff selecting the appropriate airfoil for our mission. A great book for those in the aerospace industry to have on hand. More formulas per page of any book I’ve seen. Engineer recipient was lost to conversation after opening this gift. This is my second copy. Someone borrowed my first copy and never return, because this book is too good.
