Effect of surface suction on crossflow instability and transition occuring near a swept attachment-line

By A. Smith


The work contained in this report is concerned with the use of transpiration at the leading edge of swept wings to modify and control transition due to cross-flow instability. Transition conditions are identified on both porous and non-porous surfaces, with and without suction, and the effect of two-dimensional excrescences is considered. Throughout, the application of the results to vehicle design is stressed and, where possible, simple design criteria are presented.Cranfield Universit
