Summary

This paper presents experimental and theoretical results dealing with the transition phenomena on an infinite swept wing. The research is directed towards two ways : at first, a study of the transition movement under the influence of the flow parameters ; secondly, a more fundamental study of stationary waves, which play an important role for the transition mechanisms in three-dimensional flow.
