# A comparative study of subgrid scale models in homogeneous isotropic turbulence

@article{Fureby1997ACS, title={A comparative study of subgrid scale models in homogeneous isotropic turbulence}, author={Christer Fureby and Gavin R. Tabor and Henry G. Weller and A. D. Gosman}, journal={Physics of Fluids}, year={1997}, volume={9}, pages={1416-1429} }

Recently, a number of studies have indicated that Large Eddy Simulation (LES) models are fairly insensitive to the adopted Subgrid Scale (SGS) models. In order to study this and to gain further insight into LES, simulations of forced and decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence have been performed for Taylor Re numbers between 35 and 248 using various SGS models, representative of the contemporary state of the art. The predictive capability of the LES concept is analyzed by comparison with DNS…
