Abstract:

Work progressed along the following lines i completion of the development of kinematic wave theory for propagation of waves for wave trains or wave packets with small dissipation through homogeneous or non-homogeneous media ii development of a simplified model for the influence of a large eddy breakup device on turbulent boundary layer eddies iii completion of experimental and theoretical studies of transition spots in a plane channel flow iv preparation of experimental research on flat-plate laminar and turbulent boundary layers.
