Abstract

Truncated Fourier expansions (Galerkin methods) are particularly suitable for exploring the limit of small viscosity in turbulence simulations, due to the absence of numerical viscosity. S. Orszag's powerful dealiasing procedures and Gray vectorization optimization make 2-D Navier-Stokes simulations possible on a large grid. As a large fraction of the modes are close to the spectral truncation boundary, the method of a DIA-based eddy damping term self-consistently accounts for modes outside the boundary. The code ASTER was developed as a tool for exploring this technique for further use in simulations in plasma confinement geometries.
