SUMMARYThis paper deals with the prediction of the boundary layer transition in incompressible two-and three-dimensional flows. The essential elements of the linear stability theory, governing the transition phenomenon, are introduced onto transition criteria. The presented applications to experimental cases allowed us to check up the validity of the proposed criteria.
INTRODUCTIONThe theory of laminar instability constitutes the earliest attempt to explain transition. The idea of this theory is that forced d…
