Surface imperfections, such as roughness, can affect laminar-turbulent transition process in boundary layers. One main engineering objective is predicting the initial amplitude of instability waves, which is a function of the flow's receptivity to external disturbances. Existing theories about receptivity are limited to restricted flow regimes and semi-empirical relations are commonly used in industry. In this scenario, this work seeks to obtain data about the receptivity of one-dimensional acoustic waves on roughness located in a flat plate boundary layer from direct numerical simulation of the Navier-Stokes equations, which may be extended to a less restricted flow regime. To do so, a sinusoidal velocity perturbation is superimposed on the contour of the base flow. A technique based on a vanishing 2D roughness is applied in order to obtain the instability waves amplitude. The data obtained will be validated with the data from recent experiments which used the same technique.
