Boundary layer transition is a determining factor for drag and convective heat transfer for solid bodies moving through a fluid. The transition zone is known to depend on the level of main stream turbulence. Heat transfer experiments will show the different intermittency profiles. Numerical analysis will show the influence of velocity streaks. Detailed flow experiments are used to determine a possible breakdown mechanism, which, in its turn, will be studied in a model numerical analysis.
