Part I Physical Nature -Turbulence Origin in Boundary-Layer Flows, Predominant Mechanisms and Applications (Yury S. Kachanov)

1) Introduction 2) What is turbulence? The problem of its definition and the solution of this problem. 3) Turbulence origin and its practical significance. 4) Transition scenarios and characteristic stages. 5) Classes and types of instability of laminar boundary layers. 6) Basic ideas of experimental approaches to the transition and turbulence researches. 7) Three bright examples of flow instabilities. 8) Boundary-layer receptivity to various external perturbations. 9) Three bright examples of the boundary-layer receptivity problems. 10) Nonlinear interactions of instability modes. Role of resonances. 11) Formation of vortical structures at late stages of turbulence origin and their universality. 12) Turbulence production mechanisms in transitional and turbulent flows and their similarity. 13) Deterministic turbulence " myth or reality? 14) Transition prediction approaches. 15) Control of boundary layer transition. 16) Control of turbulent boundary layers. 17) Concluding remarks.
