STABILITY AND TRANSITION OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL BOUNDARY LAYERS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract The recent progress in three-dimensional boundary-layer stability and transition is reviewed. The material focuses on the crossflow instability that leads to transition on swept wings and rotating disks. Following a brief overview of instability mechanisms and the crossflow problem, a summary of the important findings of the 1990s is given.
