Energy barrier effect on the transient nucleation kinetics is studied. For high barrier case an advanced expression of the 'boundary-layer' type is suggested that is valid for the entire time interval. For low barrier case a new 'similarity' solution is reported.

    The late stage growth mechanism for a first order phase transition, either through nucleation growth or spinodal decomposition, is well understood to be an Ostwald ripening or coarsening process, in which larger domains grow at the expense of smaller ones. The growth kinetics in this regime was...

    The joint effect of the permeability and the roughness of the flat plate surface on the boundary layer stability and laminar-turbulent transition is experimentally and theoretically investigated at the freestream Mach number M = 2. It is shown that, as a certain roughness value is reached, and...
