A solution procedure is described for determining the two-dimensional, one- or two-degree-of-freedom flutter characteristics of arbitrary airfoils at large angles of attack. The same procedure is used to predict stall flutter. This procedure requires a simultaneous integration in time of the solid and fluid equations of motion. The fluid equations of motion are the unsteady compressible Navier-Stokes equations, solved in a body-fitted moving coordinate system using an approximate factorization scheme. The solid equations of motion are integrated in time using an Euler implicit scheme. Flutter is said to occur if small disturbances imposed on the airfoil attitude lead to divergent oscillatory motions at subsequent times. Results for a number of special cases are presented to demonstrate the suitability of this scheme to predict flutter at large mean angles of attack. Some stall flutter applications are also presented.
