Spatial Navier-Stokes Simulation of Crossflow-Induced Transition in a Three-Dimensional Boundary Layer

Crossflow-dominated transition in the accelerated three-dimensional boundary layer as defined by the canonical DLR-Göttingen Prinzipexperiment is investigated by spatial direct numerical simulation. The numerical scheme is based on a combined 6-order compact finite-difference/ spanwise Fourier-spectral discretisation with an improved outflow-zone… CONTINUE READING
