Abstract:

Numerical simulation was used to explore the process of transition that a flow undergoes in changing from a laminar state to a turbulent state. The effort concentrated on three relatively simple flows for which extensive databases exist these are the plane channel, curved channel, and flat boundary layer flows. Significant results were produced for all three cases.
