Stability of a compressible boundary layer relative to a localized disturbance

  • A. S. Dryzhov


The problem of stability of an incompressible boundary layer relative to a localized disturbance is considered in a linear approximation. It is shown that the stability analysis reduces to the study of a discrete spectrum of eigenvalues of the corresponding boundary value problem. By means of numerical integration, analysis of the character of the emerging instability is carried out for an unstable mode for the Mach number M = 4.5.
