A novel scheme is presented for an iterative decambering approach to predict the post-stall characteristics of wings using known section data as inputs. The new scheme differs from earlier ones in the details of how the residual is computed. With this scheme, multiple solutions at high angles of attack are brought to light right during the computation of the residual for the Newton iteration. As with earlier schemes, multiple solutions are obtained for wings at high angles of attack and the resulting converged solution depends on the initial conditions used for the iteration. In general, the new scheme is found to be more robust at achieving convergence. Results are presented for a rectangular wing with two different airfoil lift curves and for a wing-tail configuration.
