Abstract:

An overview of research on the three dimensional nature of boundary layer transition conducted by the contractor and others is reviewed in this report. The report reviews the implications of three-dimensionality arising from several sources, including background and free-stream disturbances, curvature, cross flow and imposed streamwise vorticity. Keywords Boundary layer transition Secondary instability Navier stokes computations.
