Validation of the ATEFlap Dynamic Stall Model

Two exemplary validation graphs for the ATEFlap Dynamic Stall Model from the publication by Wendler et al. 1 are shown in Fig. 98, where the general sensitivity of the dynamic stall hysteresis loop to the reduced frequency and amplitude is well reproduced.
