  • Abstract

The secondary instability was investigated in high-speed boundary layers over flat plates by numerical methodology. The numerical simulation suggests that the main streaky structures in 2D hypersonic boundary transition process are resulted from the secondary instability theory caused by the primary 2D Mack mode. The secondary instability analysis found that a new family called fundamental family of solutions was found which is the least stable secondary instability when the amplitude of the primary mode instability reaches a threshold value. It is help for us to understand the fundamental breakdown in hypersonic boundary layers.
