This project focuses on extending the existing model for two-dimensional laminar boundary layers to turbulent boundary layers and more importantly to include the modeling of transition to turbulence in unsteady boundary layers. The existing models are extended and a new transition model for unsteady boundary layers is developed. Successful prediction of transition onset and the flow inside the transition region would greatly help in improving the design of wind turbine blades.
