Documentation of the Low-Speed Boundary-Layer Transition Workshop held at The Rand Corporation on July 16-17, 1974. The objectives of the workshop were to review the current state of the art for predicting the transition from laminar to turbulent incompressible flow and to suggest an outline of future goals for current research programs. The workshop program was divided into three sessions: theoretical, experimental, and design. The report outlines the program, lists the attendees, summarizes and discusses the sessions, and presents abstracts of the papers.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Report series. The report was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 1993 that represented the principal publication documenting and transmitting RAND's major research findings and final research.

Our mission to help improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis is enabled through our core values of quality and objectivity and our unwavering commitment to the highest level of integrity and ethical behavior. To help ensure our research and analysis are rigorous, objective, and nonpartisan, we subject our research publications to a robust and exacting quality-assurance process; avoid both the appearance and reality of financial and other conflicts of interest through staff training, project screening, and a policy of mandatory disclosure; and pursue transparency in our research engagements through our commitment to the open publication of our research findings and recommendations, disclosure of the source of funding of published research, and policies to ensure intellectual independence.
