  1. 1. Global stability analysis of three-dimensional boundary layer flows

    Author : Mattias Brynjell-Rahkola; Dan Henningson; Philipp Schlatter; Ardeshir Hanifi; Spencer Sherwin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrodynamic stability; transition to turbulence; global analysis; boundary layers; roughness; laminar flow control; Stokes Laplace preconditioner; optimal forcing; crossflow vortices; Ginzburg-Landau; Falkner-Skan-Cooke; Blasius; lid-driven cavity;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the stability and transition of incompressible boundary layers. In particular, the Falkner–Skan–Cooke boundary layer subject to a cylindrical surface roughness, and the Blasius boundary layer with applied localized suction are investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. On stability, transition and turbulence in three-dimensional boundary-layer flows

    Author : Seyed Mohammd Hosseini; Ardeshir Hanifi; Spencer Sherwin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Receptivity; stability; optimal growth; three-dimensional bound- ary layers; crossflow instability; roughness control; freestream turbulence; sec- ondary instability; transition; turbulence;

    Abstract : A lot has changed since that day on December 17, 1903 when the Wright brothers made the first powered manned flight. Even though the concepts behind flying are unaltered, appearance of stat-of-the-art modern aircrafts has undergone a massive evolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Boundary layers over wing sections

    Author : Prabal Negi; Dan Henningson; Spencer Sherwin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The understanding of developing boundary layers over wings is an important topic from the perspective of industrial applications. An increased understanding would be consequential not only for achieving higher fuel efficiency but also in the design of aircraft control strategies. READ MORE
