The present study is concerned with the stability and transition of a spatially evolving wake emanating from a splitter plate. Temporal linear stability calculations at different streamwise locations indicate significantly higher growth rates for mean flow profiles which occur near the trailing edge. Spatial simulations using these near wake mean flows exhibit non‐linear roll‐up for a case with Mach numbers of 2.76 and 1.87 on either side of the wake. If a similarity shear layer mean flow profile with these conditions is utilized in the simulation, no roll‐up is obtained.
