Title: Role of boundary layer flow in design of hypersonic vehicles
The lecture is an introductory discussion of fluid dynamics in thin layer near a wall at high speed of flight.
Tentative list of topics for the discussion:
- Introduction into boundary-layer theory
- Role of boundary-layer flow in aerodynamic heating of hypersonic vehicles
- Laminar flow versus turbulent one
- Importance of laminar-turbulent transition prediction and hydrodynamic stability theory
Details of the list will depend on the discussion progress.
