Hello!

I am currently doing an analysis on NACA 0018 to find the stall angle. I have used k-kl-w turbulence model and Re=100,000. After around 18 degrees, the residuals keep fluctuating and so do the Cl values. Even after increasing the AoA, the Cl values fluctuate at a high value and do not seem to drop, like how it is usually supposed to. Can anyone explain the problem with this? I have tried many types of mesh and still encounter the same problem.
