DNS Data for Turbulent Channel Flow
Three direct numerical simulations of fully developed flow at different
Reynolds numbers in a plane channel have been performed using the spectral
numerical method of Kim, Moin and Moser (J. Fluid Mech. vol 177, page 133).
The friction Reynolds numbers of the simulations are 180, 395 and 590.
The lowest Reynolds number simulation exhibits severe low-Reynolds number
effects, but the highest Reynolds number simulation does not. The details
of the simulations are described in Moser, Kim and Mansour
Fluids, vol 11(4) , page 943). Data may be added to the database from
time to time, and corrections may be made. The data may be added to from
time to time and corrections will be made if needed, a listing of the history
of such changes is available.
A comprehensive set of statistical data has been collected from
these simulations and is available to be downloaded through the links below.
It includes mean, Reynolds stress, skewness and flatness profiles, terms
in the Reynolds stress transport equations, spectra and two-point correlations,
and velocity and pressure probability density functions. The data is in
a series of text files.
