Abstract:
A unified approach which makes it possible to determine the extent and onset of transition in one calculation is presented. It treats the laminar fluctuations in a manner similar to that used in describing turbulence. As a result, the complete flowfield can be calculated using existing CFD codes and without the use of stability codes. The method is validated by comparing the results for flat plates, airfoils, and infinite swept wings with available experiments. In general, good agreement is indicated.
