- The degree to which local isotropy is satisfied has been examined using direct numerical simulations for a fully developed channel flow. Attention is mainly given to the high wavenumber part of vorticity and temperature derivative spectra. The ratio of these spectra and their isotropic values depends on the particular quantity considered, the departure from isotropy being more pronounced for the temperature derivative than for the vorticity. When the Kolmogorov-normalized wavenumber is sufficiently large, isotropy is satisfied provided the (Kolmogorov-normalized) mean strain rate is sufficiently small. This result appears to be independent of the quantity considered and of the Reynolds number.
