Abstract:

A survey of boundary layer transition literature is made with emphasis on the effects of surface curvature, free-stream turbulence, pressure gradients, heat transfer, and unit Reynolds number. Brief reviews of significant literature on each of the effects are presented. A discussion of methods for predicting the transition region, with emphasis on conditions commonly found in turbomachinery, is also presented. An extensive bibliography and representative figures and plots are provided. Author
