The flow in turbomachines is characterized by a high turbulent activity; its spectrum frequently reveals energy peaks at privileged frequencies. Most often they influence the boundary layer transition onset. This type of forced transition was studied at the von Karman Institute in a low speed wind-tunnel along a flat test surface. Dist ,.
