Direct Numerical Simulation of turbulent flows is a computationally demanding problem that requires efficient parallel algorithms. We investigate the applicability of the time-parallel Parareal algorithm to an instructional case study related to the simulation of the decay of homogeneous isotropic turbulence in three dimensions. We combine a Parareal variant based on explicit time integrators and spatial coarsening with the space-parallel Hybrid Navier–Stokes solver. We analyse the performance of this space–time parallel solver with respect to speedup and quality of the solution. The results are compared with reference data obtained with a classical explicit integration, using an error analysis which relies on the energetic content of the solution. We show that a single Parareal iteration is able to reproduce with high fidelity the main statistical quantities characterizing the turbulent flow field.
