The chapter contains the results of the numerical study of a model problem for estimating the influence of thermal relaxation on the turbulized flow outside the limits of the laminar-turbulent transition. Nonlinear evolution of a large-scale vortex structure in a plane shear flow of a molecular gas is considered. Such structures are inevitable attributes of the final stage of the laminar-turbulent transition and turbulence generation in plane wakes, mixing layers, and submerged jets.
