This report forms a contribution to Work Package 2 of the ESA TRP 22793/09/NL/CP ‘Laminar to Turbulent Transition in Hypersonic Flows’. A literature survey is reported, concerning the effects of various parameters on the phenomena of transition in the hypersonic regime, including endoatmospheric flight envelopes as well as the more familiar launch and entry trajectories. A wide range of experimental (in a range of facilities) and flight test results are presented, accompanied by appropriate theoretical and numerical efforts. Phenomena considered have been Mach Number, Reynolds number effects, bluntness, curvature and pressure gradient effects, porosity and wall mass transfer, roughness, separation, environmental disturbances, wall thermal conditions and high temperature effects.
