The stability of the flow over a flat plate to finite amplitude disturbances is studied using a model by Milinazzo and Saffman [J. Fluid Mech. 160, 281 (1985)]. The traveling wave solutions which bifurcate from the Orr–Sommerfeld neutral stability curve of the Blasius profile are calculated numerically. This curve is the intersection of the zero energy plane with a neutral stability surface in energy, Reynolds number, and wave‐number space. Although the bifurcation is supercritical at the… CONTINUE READING
