UK Turbulence Consortium
Welcome to the UK Turbulence Consortium website. There is general information
about the consortium, publications, results and access to the UK Turbulence
Consortium Database available here. For more details see the background
page, that also has links to other resources on
This consortium is supported by the UK Engineering
and Physical Sciences Research Council. Supercomputing resources and
support are provided as part of the national High
Performance Computing Initiative. Consortium members run simulations
on the Cray T3D and T3E at
Edinburgh, and the new 576-processor
Cray T3E-1200E at Manchester.
The Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge is running a turbulence
programme between January and July 1999, which will involve many leading
turbulence researchers from around the world. Several symposia
and workshops will be held during this period.
Improve collaboration between UK research groups working on turbulence;
Advance fundamental understanding of turbulence by coordinating high-quality
numerical simulations using high performance computers;
Enhance turbulence modelling activity in the UK by providing a mechanism
for dissemination of data from numerical simulations to members of the
UK turbulence modelling community.
Members of the Consortium
The consortium consists of academics and researchers from several UK insititutions,
including researchers in the fields of Direct Numerical Simulation, Large
Eddy Simulation and turbulence modelling. The Principal investigator for
this consortium is Neil Sandham
of Queen Mary and Westfield College, London.
For a full list of those involved in the UK turbulence consortium members,
please go to our members page.

some full papers, are is on the publications
Turbulence Database and Visualisation Tool
The UK Turbulence Consortium database is a repository of results from simulations
run as part of this research programme. This includes full datasets from
simulations which can be downloaded in raw form, and reduced datasets,
including turbulence statistics. Results will be added as they become available.
A web-based visualisation tool is also available here.
