Effect of wave disturbances on flow characteristics in a laminar compressible boundary layer
Abstract
The effect of travelingwave disturbances on flow characteristics in a laminar compressible boundary layer formed on a symmetric Joukowski profile is considered in the twodimensional formulation. The analysis of the interaction between such a boundary layer and the perturbing travelingwave field is reduced to a calculation of effective steadystate compressible laminar boundary layer for which surface conditions different from those for an unperturbed flow are introduced. A freestream Mach number of 0.2 and a Prandtl number of unity are adopted, and the flow is assumed to be isentropic. Relations are obtained which close the solution procedure for both the perturbed and the unperturbed boundary layers.
