Causes of Vortex Bursting in Transitional Boundary Layers
The cause of vortex bursts in transitional boundary layers may be explained by secondary flow formation at the turbulence spot flanks due to a lateral deflection of the main flow in the viscous sublayer and by the formation of counter-moving secondary flows in case of a changed curvature of the main flow path.
