Is it possible that as the Reynolds number increases, a laminar bubble increases in extension?

I'm studying the Benedek 10355 airfoil (Plot), which should be a profile used in air-controlled models. While I was carrying out a boundary layer analysis, I realized the particularity that I have ...

Why is hybrid laminar flow control preferred for swept wings over other options?

As I understand it, a (the?) major form of laminar-to-turbulent transition on the swept wings of large jets is the crossflow caused by the sweep. One way to control this is laminar flow control by ...

Can the wing stagnation point be bled off and used for laminar flow control?

The stagnation point at the leading edge contains slow-moving, slightly compressed air. This sounds ideal for laminar flow control. This slow air will create little losses in ducts, and it's pressure ...
