Transition control is of the great significance in laminar flows since determination of aerodynamics coefficients as well as heat transfer magnitude is strongly affected by accurate prediction and control of this phenomenon. Transition is severely dependent on space and time such that various microscopic and macroscopic scales can convert to each other rapidly. In one side, available uncertainties in RANS turbulence models can lead to inappropriate, or at least expensive, designs. In the other side, considering the growing rate of computational resources along with development of more efficient numerical methods in CFD applications, Direct Numerical Simulation, DNS, has found an applicable role even in industrial applications. In present study, a robust computational code is developed for Direct Numerical Simulation aimed at fundamental purposes. To this end, high-order compact finite-difference for spatial derivatives and high-order Runge-Kutta time integration are used in the present code as well as a low-pass filter to elucidate spurious oscillations. Also, non-reflecting boundary condition is employed to keep the domain size as small as possible and to improve the numerical accuracy at the boundaries. In present study, Direct Numerical Simulation investigates controlled transition scenarios for flow over a flat plate. Results are in a good agreement with those of previous researches both qualitatively and quantitatively which verify the various parts of the developed solver.
