Abstract

Recent analytical, computational and experimental efforts in dynamic stall research are reviewed. An assessment is made of the progress in various critical areas of research, including the effects of transition, compressibility, three-dimensionality, computational technique, grid density, and turbulence modeling. The review describes recent progress in dynamic stall control, and concludes with some perspective about future dynamic stall research.
