Aerodynamic and structural nonlinearities influence the aeroelastic behavior of helicopter rotors or wind generators. One phenomenon resulting from the coupling between the aerodynamics and the structural dynamics of these components are the stall-induced limit cycle oscillations, which have been investigated by several researchers. However, the modeling of this phenomenon is still a challenge, and it is crucial to identify the flow velocity from which the oscillations in the limit cycle begin and to characterize these vibrations in terms of amplitudes and frequencies. In this way, the present work proposes the computational implementation in state space representation of the Beddoes-Leishman method for dynamic stall and its coupling to the structural dynamics of a typical aeroelastic section. In addition, it is suggested the realization of experimental tests in order to validate the model and characterize the phenomenon. One contribution of this research work is the development of a tool for simulation of limit cycle oscillations induced by stall, which can be used for both analyses of vibrations in structures and for studies on the energy extraction of these oscillations.
