Dynamics of spectrally truncated inviscid turbulence


The evolution of the turbulent energy spectrum for the inviscid spectrally truncated Euler equations is studied by closure calculations. The observed behavior is similar to the one found in direct numerical simulations [Cichowlas, Bonaïtiti, Debbasch, and Brachet, Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 264502 (2005)]. A Kolmogorov spectral range and an equipartition range are observed simultaneously. Between these two ranges a "quasi-dissipative" zone is present in the kinetic energy spectrum. The time evolution of the wave number that marks the beginning of the equipartition range is analyzed and it is shown that spectral nonlocal interactions are governing this evolution.
