Description: Memorandum presenting a theoretical analysis of the effect of aerodynamic hysteresis on stalling flutter. The results were applied to a given airfoil and correlation of the experimental and theoretical results was found possible by assuming that the angle of aerodynamic lag varies as the slope of the static-lift curve. It was shown that the phenomenon of stalling flutter can at least in some cases be explained on the basis of an aerodynamic lag or hysteresis effect.
