Geometric Acoustics in High-Speed Boundary Layers


A key mechanism responsible for the instability of high-speed boundary layers are the high-frequency modes discovered by Mack [1]. These modes are primarily acoustic in nature, are always present if the edge Mach number is sufficiently large, and are the dominant instability mechanism when the wall temperature is sufficiently low compared to the recovery temperature.
