Abstract : The report is concerned with the aerodynamics of the aircraft stall at both low speeds and high, with particular reference to the design and operation of combat and transport aircraft, including buffet penetration and post-stall behaviour. Major subject areas concerned flight experience, flight testing, wind-tunnel measurements and theoretical prediction methods, including the effects of three-dimensional flow, the influence of sweepback and the design and performance of high-lift devices. Consideration of special types of V/STOL aircraft were excluded, however, apart from occasional excursions such as the paper on transport aircraft with externally blown flaps. (Author)
