The research presented in this thesis focuses on the receptivity to surface roughness of swept wing boundary layers dominated by crossflow instabilities (CFI), providing insights into how surface roughness can be used to passively control the developing instabilities. Discrete roughness elements (DRE) arrays and distributed randomized roughness...

Laminar-turbulent transition dictates an increase in skin friction. The resulting turbulent skin friction contributes to approximately 40% of the total drag of commercial aircraft. Reducing the turbulent flow region by postponing transition can therefore significantly reduce the carbon footprint and costs of flying. Transition prediction is...
