A Navier-Stokes code, developed by N.L. Sankar, and an Interactive Boundary Layer code, developed by Tuncer Cebeci, are implemented for high Reynolds number, low Mach flows over a NACA 0012 airfoil. Upper surface pressure distributions, coefficients of lift, coefficients of friction, and velocity profiles obtained from the Navier-Stokes code are compared to results obtained from the Cebeci Interactive Boundary Layer code for steady flow. The steady state cases investigated aaare at .3 Mach and a Reynolds number of 1.3 million.
