Validation of DMST code

I am currently working on a Double-Multiple-StreamTube code for assessing the performance of VAWTs. I have been able to find data to validate the code for a symmetric aerofoil with zero pitch. However, I was hoping to test it with cambered aerofoils. Is there any data in the public domain corresponding to a VAWT with cambered aerofoils? It would be great if azimuthal variation is detailed but Cp lambda curves alone should be enough to begin with.

Many thanks,
