When boundary layer heating is used to laminarize a turbulent boundary layer, the degree of success can be determined by measuring the decrease of intermittency in the transition boundary layer. Since heating is used the local heat transfer coefficients can be measured and there is a relation between the change in intermittency and the change in Stanton number at a point as the boundary layer tends to go laminar. The paper also relates this to changes in the temperature profiles.
