Computation of compressible two-dimensional turbulence in non rotating and rotating flows
For the time being only preliminary experiments have been performed. It is therefore difficult to reach definite conclusions. We are now doing a systematic survey of different cases : inviscid statistical equilibria, decaying and forced turbulence, with different resolutions, parameters and initial conditions.
