We report here results from a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a turbulent channel flow at a friction Reynolds number Reτ = 550 performed with a new subgrid modeling approach proposed by the same authors in Cimarelli et al., Phys. Fluids, 26, 055103 (2014), . This subgrid scale model aims at reproducing the double feature of energy sink and source of the small scales of wall flows which become relevant when large filter lengths are adopted. Here we report a further analysis of the model by considering the instantaneous behavior of events of backward and forward energy transfer.
