Boundary Layer Transition Research
Experiments are undertaken in sub-orbital and super-orbital hpervelocity flows in the Centre. The experimental work is done mostly in the shock tunnels and expansion tubes at UQ.
Boundary layer transition has been observed to take place through formation, growth and merger of turbulent spots in both incompressible and compressible flows (e.g. Emmons 1951; Clark et al. 1994). In studying transitio...
