Abstract

This document constitutes the final report for SERC award No. GR/F/06760. It first details the work programme of the original proposal made in 1987 and notes the work done to illustrate completion and extensions beyond that proposed. For brevity, we confine the technical discussion to the salient features of a particular aerofoil, albeit the work was an integral part of a larger programme on dynamic stall. The extent of this work may be gleaned from the accompanying enclosures representing some recent activity at Glasgow University. Two of the main technical results from the present authors are worthy of note in that the first (i.e. a correletion for incipient dynamic stall) has been used both in industry (VAWT Ltd) and research (under SERC GR/F/63466) to propose new aerofoil shapes for wind turbines. The second, however, (negative lift at large incidence during ramp-down motions from the stalled condition) has generated a new research activity (funded under SERC GR/H167U). This and future prospects are discussed prior to the concluding remarks. These remarks express the authors opinion of the success and overall value of the programme.
