The purpose of this paper is to present a numerical study of flow fields for the NREL S805 and S809 airfoils using a spatially second-order symmetric total variational diminishing scheme. The steady two-dimensional flow is modeled as turbulent, viscous, and incompressible and is formulated in the pseudo-compressible form. The turbulent flow is closed by the Baldwin-Lomax algebraic turbulence model. Numerical solutions are obtained by the implicit approximate-factorization method. The accuracy of the numerical results is compared with the Delft two-dimensional wind tunnel test data. For comparison, the Eppler code results are also included. Numerical solutions of pressure and lift coefficients show good agreement with the experimental data, but not the drag coefficients. To properly simulate the post-stall flow field, a better turbulence model should be used.
