A finite-difference solver for bi-global secondary linear stability theory is presented and applied to laminar Mach 4.8 boundary-layer flows altered by 3-D “pizza-box” type roughness elements on a flat plate. The steady primary state in flow crosscuts is extracted from accompanying spatial direct numerical simulations (DNS) employing the immersed-boundary technique for the roughness element that is roughly 0.5 undisturbed boundary-layer thicknesses high. A comparison of the stability-theory… CONTINUE READING
