# Numerical investigation of turbulent channel flow

@article{Moin1981NumericalIO, title={Numerical investigation of turbulent channel flow}, author={Parviz Moin and John Kim}, journal={Journal of Fluid Mechanics}, year={1981}, volume={118}, pages={341 - 377} }

Fully developed turbulent channel flow has been simulated numerically at Reynolds number 13800, based on centre-line velocity and channel half-width. The large-scale flow field has been obtained by directly integrating the filtered, three-dimensional, time-dependent Navier-Stokes equations. The small-scale field motions were simulated through an eddy-viscosity model. The calculations were carried out on the ILLIACIV computer with up to 516096 grid points. The computed flow field was used to…
