The influence of Mach number (M = 0.35 to 0.65), chord Reynolds number (Rec = 6E6 to 10E6) and pressure gradient (dcp/dx= -0.6 to 0.07 1/m) on laminar-turbulent boundary layer transition was experimentally investigated in the Cryogenic Ludwieg-Tube Göttingen (DNW-KRG). For this investigation the existing two-dimensional wind tunnel model, PaLASTra, which offers a quasi-uniform streamwise pressure gradient, was modified in order to reduce the size of the flow separation at its trailing edge. The streamwise temperature distribution and the location of laminar-turbulent transition were measured by means of temperature-sensitive paint (TSP). It was found that the transition Reynolds number exhibits a linear dependence on the pressure gradient, characterized by the Hartree parameter, and that an increasing Mach number leads to a linear decrease of the transition Reynolds number. This effect is likely due to an increase of the total pressure turbulence level with Mach number in DNW-KRG. The measured pressure and temperature distributions served as input for boundary layer calculations and linear-stability analysis. N-factors were calculated according to compressible and incompressible stability theory. At zero pressure gradient a critical N-factor of approximately 9.5 and 9.0 was found for incompressible and compressible calculations, respectively.
