Existing experimental and numerical data suggest that the turbulence energy dissipation and enstrophy i.e., the square of vorticity possess different scaling properties, while available theory suggests that there should be no differences at sufficiently high Reynolds numbers. We have performed a series of direct numerical simulations with up to 20483 grid points where advanced computational power is used to increase the Reynolds number up to 650 on the Taylor scale or to resolve the small… CONTINUE READING
