The present paper deals with the control of the laminar-turbulent transition on a swept wing in supersonic conditions. This study has been carried out as part of the European Project SUPERTRAC (SUPERsonic TRAnsition Control; January 2005, June 2008). Two issues have been addressed with the same model: the first one is the control of the transition due to crossflow (CF) instabilities present on a swept wing, by using Micron-Sized Roughness elements (MSR); the second one is the prevention of the turbulent contamination along the leading edge by means of appropriate Anti-Contamination Devices (ACD). The paper describes the work concerning the numerical approach, the model design, the tests in the ONERA S2MA wind tunnel in Modane and the analysis of the results.
