Abstract

Experimental and numerical mean data are compared in detail for a three-dimensional supersonic turbulent boundary layer generated by an isentropic compression. Three distinct flow regimes were identified in the mean flow field. Turbulence intensities measured in the three-dimensional flow are compared to corresponding two-dimensional adverse pressure gradient flows to determine the effects of three-dimensionality.
