Lift is a force generated by turning a flow Source. The trailing edge flaps increase the amount of turning in the flow, it can be seen from looking at the geometry only, they tend to point downward. ...

This is as far as I managed to get to unfortunately, I wouldn't use these numbers without a validation test but I ran some simulations between 0 and 440 ms^-1 at the inlet to generate a rule which I ...
