DNS Data for Turbulent Couette Flow

The files in this directory tree contain statistical data extracted from direct numerical simulations of fully developed plane turbulent Couette flow. Some of these data are discussed in Myoungkyu Lee and Robert D. Moser "Extreme-scale motions in turbulent plane Couette flows", Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018, vol. 842, pp. 128-145.

The data are normalized with friction velocity and viscosity. The center of channel is not computed due to code performance optimization.
