Demonstrates the basic aspects of viscous in compressible boundary layers: what causes them, how they grow, how they respond to pressure gradients, the main stages in the transition of laminar and turbulent layers to turbulent ones, and the differnences in behaviour of laminar and turbulent layers. The behaviour of boundary layers is demonstrated by hydrogen-bubble and smoke visualization of flows past flat plates and airfoils, and in converging and diverging passages.
