  1. 1. Receptivity of Boundary-Layer Flows over Flat and Curved Walls

    Author : Lars-Uve Schrader; Luca Brandt; Dan Stefan Henningson; Gregoire Casalis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Boundary-layer receptivity; laminar-turbulent transition; swept-plate boundary layer; Görtler flow; leading-edge effects; swept-wing flow; crossflow vortices; Görtler rolls; disturbance streaks; wall roughness; free-stream turbulence; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Direct numerical simulations of the receptivity and instability of boundary layers on flat and curved surfaces are herein reported. Various flow models are considered with the aim to capture aspects of flows over straight and swept wings such as wall curvature, pressure variations, leading-edge effects, streamline curvature and crossflow.

  2. 2. Receptivity of crossflow-dominated boundary layers

    Author : David Tempelmann; Ardeshir Hanifi; Dan Henningson; Anatoli Tumin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Receptivity; three-dimensional boundary layers; optimal growth; adjoint solutions; swept wing;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with receptivity mechanisms of three-dimensional, crossflow-dominated boundary layers. The receptivity of two model problems, a swept-flat-plate and a swept-wing boundary layer, is investigated by solving the parabolised stability equations (PSE) as well as by performing direct numerical simulations (DNS).

  3. 3. On stability and receptivity of boundary-layer flows

    Author : Nima Shahriari; Ardeshir Hanifi; Dan S. Henningson; Peter J. Schmid; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; boundary layer receptivity; acoustic receptivity; swept-wing flow; crossflow vortices; roughness element; global stability analysis; direct numerical simulation; plasma actuator; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : This work is concerned with stability and receptivity analysis as well as studies on control of the laminar-turbulent transition in boundary-layer flows through direct numerical simulations. Various flow configurations are considered to address flow around straight and swept wings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies of the rotating-disk boundary-layer flow

    Author : Shintaro Imayama; Henrik Alfredsson; Rebecca Lingwood; Peter Thomas; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fluid mechanics; laminar-turbulent transition; convective instability; absolute instability; secondary instability; hot-wire anemometry; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The rotating-disk boundary layer is not only a simpler model for the study of cross-flow instability than swept-wing boundary layers but also a useful simplification of many industrial-flow applications where rotating configurations are present. For the rotating disk, it has been suggested that a local absolute instability, leading to a global instability, is responsible for the small variation in the observed laminar-turbulent transition Reynolds number however the exact nature of the transition is still not fully understood.

  5. 5. Experimental study of the rotating-disk boundary-layer flow

    Author : Shintaro Imayama; Henrik Alfredsson; Rebecca Lingwood; Benoît Pier; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fluid mechanics; boundary layer; rotating disk; laminar-turbulent transition; convective instability; absolute instability; secondary instability; crossflow instability; hot-wire anemometry.;

    Abstract : Rotating-disk flow has been investigated not only as a simple model of cross flow instability to compare with swept-wing flow but also for industrial flow applications with rotating configurations. However the exact nature of laminar-turbulent transi- tion on the rotating-disk flow is still major problem and further research is required for it to be fully understood, in particular, the laminar-turbulent transition process with absolute instability.
