Abstract : Research activities in transitional and turbulent boundary layers and free shear flows are described. Experimental efforts which focused on an understanding of turbulent 'spots' in a developing laminar boundary layer flow, the development of conditional sampling technique for high response anemometry data, studies of spanwise streaks in the near wall region of a turbulent boundary layer and the dynamics of free and impinging jet flows are described. Analytical studies of the nonlinear stability of plane stagnation flows are also discussed.
