Abstract : Interpreting high angles of attack as those associated with stall and post-stall behaviour, the report reviews both aerodynamic and dynamic aspects. Dynamic considerations include stability and control response, and pre-stall and post-stall behaviour. Aerodynamic considerations range over a wide field covering two-dimensional stall characteristics, finite wing stall characteristics, including the effects of stall control devices, downwash at high angles, aircraft configuration force and moment characteristics, and aerodynamic derivative characteristics. Unsteady effects, Mach number effects, and propeller slipstream effects are included. (Author)
