Direct Numerical Simulation of Turbulent Pipe Flow at Moderately High Reynolds Numbers

Abstract

Fully resolved direct numerical simulations (DNSs) have been performed with a high-order spectral element method to study the flow of an incompressible viscous fluid in a smooth circular pipe of radius R and axial length 25R in the turbulent flow regime at four different friction Reynolds numbers Reτ = 180, 360, 550 and 1,000. The new set of data is put… (More)
