We describe a series of computational experiments that employ nonoscillatory finite volume methods to simulate the decay of high Reynolds number turbulence. These experiments cover a broad range of physical viscosities and numerical resolutions. We have extracted a data set from these experiments detailing the energy dissipation by physical viscosity and by the numerical algorithm. We offer a preliminary analysis of this data, including new insights into the (computational) transition between direct numerical simulation and large eddy simulation.
