Stability analysis of three-dimensional laminar compressible boundary layers based in ray-tracing theory and multiple scale technique

Raffaele S. Donelli, Donato de Rosa

Abstract


The objective of the present work is to improve the physical understanding of specific 3D stability and transition processes in 3D mean flow by using a full stability theory, based on a multiple scales method and ray theory.

Keywords
