Measurements of nearly isotropic turbulence downstream of an active grid are performed as a high-Reynolds-number ($Re_{\lambda} \approx 720$) update of the Comte-Bellot & Corrsin (1971) data set. Energy spectra at four downstream distances from the grid, ranging from $x/M=20$ to $x/M=48$, are measured and documented for subsequent initialization of, and comparison with, large-eddy simulations (LES). Data are recorded using an array of four X-wire probes which enables measurement of filtered…
