Turbulent Flat Plate Validation Case
I'm putting together a suite of CFD validation cases.

One case should be a simple turbulent flat plate.

The best reference case I have for this is the old Wieghardt & Tillman (NACA TM 1314) case from 1951. This was used by Coles and others for the 1969 Stanford conference and later also by many others as a reference case, for example Patel, Rodi & Scheuerer used it in their classical review of low-Re models from 1985.

Is this still the best standard turbulent flat-plate case to use as a simple validation case for CFD codes/turbulence models? Any suggestions on another turblent flat plate case to use instead?
