Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


The experimental data on interactions of disturbances of laminar flow during the transition to turbulence in separation bubbles are reported. The considerations are devoted to subharmonic excitation and an effect of artificially excited oscillations on “natural” spectrum in separation bubbles.
