Abstract

Numerical simulation results for the behaviour of disturbances in flows over compliant surfaces are described. Most attention is given to the propagation of Tollmien-Schlichting waves over compliant panels and the self-excited generation of such waves by very short panels. The use of compliant walls to suppress transiently growing forms of boundary-layer disturbance and the effects of surface compliance on the rotating disc boundary layer are also briefly discussed.
