The dissipation rate is required to assess the Kolmogorov scales, the smallest scales of motion in turbulent flow. A priori knowledge about these scales is needed to design both experiments and numerical simulations. However, an explicit evaluation of the dissipation is difficult. Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) without turbulence model is still rare for practical flow problems.
