Prediction of Laminar to Turbulent Flow over a Sweptback Wing
The Prediction of Laminar-Turbulent flow over wings and airfoils is necessary for low-Reynolds number airflows. The Prediction of onset of transition based on linear and Parabolized Stability Equations (PSE) using en method is reviewed and factors that influence the choice of approach are discussed. Comparison between prediction of linear and parabolized stability equation are given for a range of flow conditions on an Infinite sweptback wing.
