Large eddy simulation of decaying magnetohydrodynamic turbulence with dynamic subgrid-modeling

Abstract : The numerical large eddy simulation (LES) technique is tested on decaying magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. The LES approach allows for a strong reduction in computational cost compared to direct numerical simulations by modeling the effects of the smallest turbulent scales instead of computing them directly. Two small-scale models of eddy-viscosity type are presented for this purpose in combination with a procedure for the self-consistent calculation of the model parameters in the course of the simulation. The method is successfully tested by comparing the obtained results to a high-resolution direct numerical simulation of decaying three-dimensional MHD turbulence.
