This data base contains the results of the Working Group 21 of the Fluid
Dynamics Panel of AGARD. It was compiled on October 1997, and it is intended
for the validation of LES computations. As such it contains some data sets,
particularly two-point correlation functions, which are specifically designed
for that purpose. The use of these data is explain in chapter 2 of the
printed report described below.
The companion printed report (AR-345) is available through the standard AGARD (RTO)
channels, and can also be found, in the form of postscript (or PDF) files,
in the directory docs/, from where it can be printed.
This report, and the individual data sheets which it contains, include
much more information on the characteristics of the individual data sets than
is available from the README files in this electronic version. The report
contains, however, no actual data, which can only be found here.
At the time of publication the data base is also available on line at
torroja.dmt.upm.es (Spain) as anonymous ftp
Although both sites are privately maintained, and there is no guarantee
of their permanence, they will probably be updated periodically as new data
become available or bugs are discovered with the present ones.
The data has been examined as thoroughly as possible for errors and
accuracy, but they are otherwise provided "as is". Nevertheless, if you
discover obvious errors, formatting or otherwise, please contact the
member of the working group with whom you feel most comfortable, and we
MAY try to fix it in the on-line sites.
If you REALLY do not know who to contact, send me a mail at:
and I will transfer it to the proper person.
A list of WG members is given at the end of this file.
The data and the printed report are organized into six chapters (3 to 8),
each one dedicated to one class of flows. A summary list of the data chapters
and of the data sets that they contain, is given next.
All the files are ASCII uncoded files, except for a few large ones which
are given in binary, unstructured format, using 32-bits integer or ieeeC
floating point notation (big-endian flavour, as in DEC, IBM, SGI processors).
This data needs to be byte-reversed to be used in Intel chips.
Some utilities are provided for this in the directory progs/, but they may
need adaptation for your particular system. Those data also have to be transferred
with the usual care when going from Unix to Windows systems or vice-versa.
A list of binary files is given below the list of data sets.
Users might particularly want to read chapter 2 of the printed (or *.ps) report
to understand the format and use of these binary files, but each of them
is preceded by an ASCII header that should be read before use.
All binary files are named *.bin.
