I am working on a school project (aircraft design).
I would like to know how to calculate the cruising speed of a given airfoil. For example, if I have a NACA 5613-35 airfoil (that is the NACA 4 digit modified series), what is the the cruising speed at which this airfoil has the best aerodynamic properties?
Another way to ask this question: If I want my aircraft to have a cruising speed of 120 knots, how do I choose an airfoil to fit the cruising speed requirement?
I tried looking it up on google and on some other aviation forums, but I did not find the answer.
Thanks in advance and have a great day!
