Databases of Direct Numerical Simulations of turbulent channel flow

High-resolution long-time resimulations of classic cases at Re_tau=180 and Re_tau=590 (Kim, Moin & Moser 1987; Moser, Kim & Mansour 1999):

Chan180_FD2: Finite-difference simulation at Re_tau=180 (512x256x256 grid).

Chan180_S2: Spectral simulation at Re_tau=180 (384x193x192 grid).

Chan590_S1: Spectral simulation at Re_tau=590 (768x385x768 grid).

Chan180_S2_B3: Spectral simulation at Re_tau=180 (384x193x192 grid, time discretization B3).

Chan180_S3_B3: Spectral simulation at Re_tau=180 (384x385x192 grid, time discretization B3).

Chan180_S4_B3: Spectral simulation at Re_tau=180 (576x577x288 grid, time discretization B3).

Each database is a collection of files with statistics from a numerical solution of the Navier-Stokes equations. The finite-difference Navier-Stokes solver was developed by Bert Vreman, the spectral solver by Hans Kuerten.
