Abstract

Efficacy of several large-scale flow parameters as transition onset markers are evaluated using direct numerical simulation (DNS) of boundary layer bypass transition. Preliminary results identify parameters k_2D/?? and u^'/U_? to be a potentially reliable transition onset marker, and their critical values show less than 15% variation on the range of Re and TI. These parameters will be implemented into general-purpose physics based Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) models for engineering applications.
