Forced Isotropic Turbulence
Dataset description

Forced isotropic turbulence:

Simulation data provenance: JHU DNS code (see README-isotropic for more details).

  • Direct numerical simulation (DNS) using 1,0243 nodes.
  • Navier-Stokes is solved using pseudo-spectral method.
  • Energy is injected by keeping constant the total energy in shells such that |k| is less or equal to 2.
  • After the simulation has reached a statistical stationary state, 5,028 frames of data with 3 velocity components and pressure are stored in the database. Extra time frames at the beginning and at the end have been added to be used for temporal-interpolations.
  • The Taylor-scale Reynolds number fluctuates around Rλ~ 433
  • There is one dataset ("coarse") with 5028 timesteps available, for time t between 0 and 10.056 (the frames are stored at every 10 time-steps of the DNS). Intermediate times can be queried using temporal-interpolation.
  • There is another dataset ("fine") that stores every single time-step of the DNS, for testing purposes. Times available are for t between 0.0002 and 0.0198).
  • A table with the time history of the total kinetic energy and Taylor-scale Reynolds number as function of time can be downloaded from this text file.
  • Radial spectrum E(k) averaged over time can be downloaded from this text file.
