We analyze modern methods for calculating heat and hydrodynamic flow parameters in a boundary layer during the laminar–turbulent transition. The main approaches for describing the phenomenon of laminar–turbulent transition are examined. Each approach is analyzed. The manner in which different factors influence the laminar–turbulent transition is studied. An engineering model of the laminar–turbulent transition in a high-velocity flow is presented.
