A locally interactive laminar separation bubble model

Paoio Dini, Mark D. Maughmer

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A laminar separation bubble model has been developed which approximates the vicous/invrscid interaction in the bubble region. An implicit transition criterion allows the accurate prediction of the bubble length and of the shear layer growth along the bubble. Recent insights into the bubble flow field have uncovered the need to modify existing turbulent closure correlations between the boundary-layer variables. As the experimental data base necessary for their development is lacking, possible modifications to correlations in use are proposed and preliminary results discussed.
