Abstract : Research was conducted to examine two aspects of boundary layer flow: 1) the influence of free-stream turbulence on zero pressure gradient, full turbulent boundary layer flow; and 2) the combined effects of free-stream turbulence and favorable streamwise pressure gradients on transitional boundary layer flow. Keywords: Convective heat transfer coefficients; Boundary layer transition; Gas turbine airfoils; Boundary layer mean velocity; Experimental data. (edc)
