Abstract:

We present LES results of the evolution of a decaying magneto hydrodynamic MHD mixing layer using dynamic eddy-viscosity subgrid scale models. The LES results are obtained using a spectral code with a 32exp 3 resolution and are compared to a direct numerical simulation DNS with 128exp 3 Fourier modes. The evolution of the kinetic and magnetic energies is presented and their profiles along the inhomogeneous direction is also discussed.
