The workshop was the second low-speed boundary-layer transition workshop under joint sponsorship of ARPA and ONR and organized by Rand. There were 110 participants and 32 papers presented in 6 sessions. The primary goal of the the Workshop was to provide a forum to exchange current research results, to assess recent progress in laminar--flow technology, and to establish new, viable research goals. This proceedings volume includes the meeting program, list of attendees and abstracts of the papers. The papers were divided according to subject matter, resulting in the following sessions: (1) Numerical investigations of Navier-Stokes equation, (2) Transition and stability theory, (3) Predictions of transition by model equations, (4) Effects of free stream disturbances and surface roughness on transition, (5) Experimental investigations of transition, (6) Design and parametric studies of laminar flow bodies.

This report is part of the RAND paper series. The paper was a product of RAND from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
