Abstract

Oblique breakdown to turbulence was initiated by low amplitude forcing in a laminar flat-plate boundary layer at Mach three. The growth of the instability waves was investigated using spatial Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS). Excellent agreement with theory was obtained in the linear stage corroborating that the entire transition process from the linear regime to the final breakdown was captured. A fully turbulent flow was reached demonstrating that this transition scenario is a viable path to turbulence. Key events in the late nonlinear stage of breakdown are studied in detail.
