Description

Turbulence and Transition in Supersonic and Hypersonic Flows explains how to understand and mathematically model these phenomena, with an emphasis on the unique challenges and features that the compressibility of the fluid introduces. This timely book responds to an increase in research interest in this topic, explaining how to use the latest numerical methods as well as providing important background theory. It covers both the problem of how a laminar boundary layer transitions to turbulence in the supersonic and hypersonic regime and the problem of how compressibility of a fluid affects turbulence.

Compressible flows are important in many areas of engineering, including external aerodynamics, internal flows in propulsion and power generation applications, flows in supercritical fluids, and many others.
