Abstract : This EPOSR Fellowship program has supported students in conducting research for the parent programs (AFOSR Grant No: AFOSR-89-0324 and No. F49620-94-1-0126). In four years one doctoral and two master students completed their degrees with the support of this program. Their research areas are associated with experimental investigation of the flow and thermal structures in transitional boundary layers with both favorable and adverse pressure gradients and with/without leading edge roughness. The results have been submitted as three separate AFOSR technical reports. The primary conclusions from each part of the investigation are summarized in this report. The detailed information is referred to in corresponding technical reports and papers.
