<div>The process by which a flow initially laminar becomes turbulent is called transition. Transition is not a discontinuity, rather it involves a mechanism by which the flow changes from laminar through a state of intermittent laminar-turbulence and finally becomes fully turbulent. The distance and time over which this takes place depends on the particular flow.<br />
<br />
It was established by Rayleigh in 1880 and later confirmed by Reynolds that transition is a stability problem. The flow can be seen as a dynamic system subject to perturbations. Viscous forces lead to the decay of these disturbances. When the Reynolds number increases beyond a critical limit, these disturbances can no longer be attenuated and stability is lost. In a sense we could say laminar flow and turbulence flows are special solutions of the navier stokes equations. The latter predominates in flows with vanishing viscosity. The Reynolds number, defined as the ratio of the inertia to the viscous forces, can be also be understood as a dimensionless reciprocal of viscosity.<br />
<br />
The mechanism by which disturbance waves are generated in shear and boundary layers from the upstream disturbances is termed receptivity (Morkovin). depending on their method of amplification, disturbances can be classified as spatial, temporal or spatio-temporal.<br />
<br />
Fundamental studies of transition have been carried out using the [[linear stability theory]] developped by Rayleigh, Orr and Sommerfeld. This theory assumes a parallel flow and a superposition of 2D disturbances. It is well known among fluid dynamicists as the Orr-Sommerfeld equation. Given the amplitude and frequency(ies) of disturbances,a flow field can be analysed to see the evolution of these disturbances in space and time. Transition occurs where these are strongly amplified. Using DNS, details of transition mechanisms can be obtained from simulation. One of the main challenges in transition study is the modelling and the documentation of the boundary conditions of the flow. It does not suffice to know the degree of turbulence. Acoustic and vortical(turbulence) disturbance environments are difficult to accurately document/measure.<br />
<br />
Over the years, engineering tasks have compelled researchers to consider alternatives to the rigourous and linear theory. Other methods have evoled:<br />
* Parabolized Stability Equation (PSE)<br />
*The e_n method based on correlations and partial application of the linear stability theory<br />
*Empirical correlations with the help of which the critical Reynolds number is determined.<br />
<br />
The advance of CFD and the importance of transition in the design of turbomachines or flight vehicles have raised the question of coupling transition correlations to CFD solvers. <br />

==[[Baldwin-Lomax model]]==<br />
<br />
The Baldwin-Lomax model is a classical algebraic turbulence model which is suitable for high-speed flows with thin attached boundary-layers, typically present in aerospace and turbomachinery applications. The Baldwin-Lomax model is not suitable for cases with large separated regions and significant curvature/rotation effects... <br />
