This paper presents recent advances in boundary layer research that deal with an intermittency based unsteady boundary layer transition model and its implementation into the Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes equations (RANS). RANS equations are conditioned to include the ensemble averaged unsteady intermittency function. The unsteady boundary layer transition model is based on a universal unsteady intermittency function developed earlier. It accounts for the effects of periodic unsteady wake flow on the boundary layer transition. The transition model is the result of an inductive approach analyzing the unsteady data obtained by experiments on a curved plate at zero-streamwise pressure gradient under periodic unsteady wake flow. To validate this model, systematic experimental investigations were conducted on the suction and pressure surfaces of turbine blades that were integrated into a turbine cascade test facility, which was designed for unsteady boundary layer investigations. This model is implemented into the above mentioned conditioned RANS-equations and calculation results are presented.
