Abstract

This chapter focuses on instability and laminar—turbulent transition in local regions of boundary layer separation or ‘separation bubbles’ in the steady flow of an incompressible fluid. The present topic applies to aerodynamics of aerofoils and wings at low Reynolds numbers, boundary layers affected by steps, humps and other surface imperfections, flow separation at sharp edges, etc.
