Numerical simulations of the DLR F11 high lift half model in landing configuration in the test section of the ETW wind tunnel have been carried out with the unstructured CFD code DLR TAU. The numerical results are compared to measurements of the cryogenic wind tunnel ETW performed within the EU project FLIRET. The tests have been conducted with three different peniche heights of the F11 model to determine the influence of the so called half model mounting effects on the aerodynamic
