Future aircraft will use laminar flow wings in order to reduce the fuel consumption and the ecological footprint of aviation. For the design of laminar wings, state-of-the-art CFD codes currently use empirical criteria, database methods, transport equation models or concepts based linear stability theory (LST) for transition prediction. The different methods vary significantly in the amount of...
