A numerical study of the generation of Tollmien-Schlichting waves due to the interaction between a small free-stream disturbance and a small localized variation of the surface geometry such as a hump or suction strip has been carried out using both finite difference and spectral methods. The nonlinear steady flow is of the viscous-inviscid interactive type while the unsteady disturbed flow is assumed to be governed by linearized disturbance equations. The numerical solutions illustrate the growth or decay of the TS waves generated by the interaction, depending on the value of a scaled Strouhal number.
