The classical concept of boundary layer corresponds to a thin region next to the wall in a flow where viscous forces are important which may affect the engineering process of producing.
Because hypersonic flow is far more complex than low speed flow (low Mach numbers flow and incompressible flow), the prediction of hypersonic boundary layer transition has become more difficult, which makes the transition mechanism of hypersonic boundary layer unclear.
