Re: DNS from k-e code

It depends on your code ... Things are not just easy as turning off the turbulent viscosity. I mean, to compute real DNS, you may also increase the precision achieved, by changing the schemes (spatial and temporal) and the boundary conditions ... At the end, one can wonder whether it is not better to start your new code from scratch ?!

Good luck

Theoretically: reduce the mesh size and the time step below the smallest expected scales of the flow.

In practice: check your schemes (space-differentiation at the order 4 or more, time-integration at the order 2 or more).

Consider acoustic resolution (if yes, your have to adapt both solvers and BC)
