Finite-mode spectral model of homogeneous and isotropic Navier-stokes turbulence: a rapidly depleted energy cascade.

Abstract

An eddy-viscous term is added to Navier-Stokes dynamics at wave numbers k greater than the inflection point kc of the energy flux F(log(k)). The eddy viscosity is fixed so that the energy spectrum satisfies E(k) = E(kc) (k/kc)(-3) for k>kc. This resulting forcing induces a rapid depletion of the energy cascade at k>kc. It is observed numerically that the… (More)
