Abstract:

An investigation of the various parameters that affect separation was undertaken to determine if scale effects exist. For example, in incompressible flow a full, thick, turbulent boundary layer will separate more readily in an adverse pressure gradient than a thin boundary layer. The emphasis throughout is on the two-dimensional, forward facing step and compression corners and the shock wave boundary-layer interaction.
