The results of investigation of the transverse flow inhomogeneity effect on the natural and controlled disturbance development in 3D supersonic boundary layer are considered. The transition curves were measured on a model of a smooth swept wing and on a swept wing with roughness elements of two configurations. The influence of periodic surface roughness on the growth of natural pulsations (without using a discharge) in the boundary layer is determined. In experiments with artificial disturbances it is found that the periodic modulation of mean flow can lead to stabilization of controlled disturbances in supersonic boundary layer on a swept wing. It was found out that the weak flow inhomogeneity can influence the effectiveness of the active/passive technology of supersonic boundary layer transition control, including the surface microroughness on a swept wing.
