Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to develop numerical simulations of boundary layer transition. One of the essential aspects of the work was to investigate carefully the appropriate boundary conditions and mathematical models that should be employed in the study of transition processes. The effects of three dimensionality, spanwise wavelength selection, and streamline curvature were also considered.
