The aim of this work is two-fold. Firstly, 28 sets of airfoil (widely used for wind turbine applications) measurements were compared with numerical results from a 2D Navier-Stokes solver and a panel method code. These results have been collected into an airfoil catalogue that has been separately published. Secondly, based on the previous results, criterions for evaluating the airfoils are derived. Thereby, the performance of the Navier-Stokes solver is evaluated. Further analysis of the results determines geometrical and flow properties that may cause problems when computing airfoil flows with a Navier-Stokes solver, and some recommendations are given.
