Abstract

Swept-wedge flows are used to study the effects of pressure gradient and flow angle on the stability of three-dimensional laminar boundary layers. It is shown that the flow is absolutely unstable in the chordwise direction, i.e. disturbances grow in time at every chordwise location, for certain parameter combinations. However, laminar–turbulent transition may still be a convective process.
