Transition at Natural Conditions and Comparison with the Results of Wind Tunnel Studies

  • B. Yu. Zanin
Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


The results of the experimental investigations of boundary-layer laminar-turbulent transition on the glider wing by hot-wire anemometer and sublimating coating films are presented. The comparison between the measurement results at flight and in the wind tunnel is conducted.
