The difference and connection between RANS and LES is briefly discussed. After reviewing the success of several LES models some necessary qualities for modeled length scale are concluded. A new 3D von Karman length scale which leads to SAS models is thus proposed for real-life flow simulation. Its “LES” function is extensively evaluated via the simulation of benchmark isotropic decaying turbulence. This length scale can fully make use of the local mesh and yield satisfactorily fine results even at coarse mesh resolutions, and moreover the results have some sort of unity.
