We present three-dimensional numerical simulations (DNS) of the Kida vortex flow, a prototypical turbulent flow, using a novel high-order lattice Boltzmann model. Extensive comparisons of various global and local statistical quantities obtained with an incompressible flow spectral element solver are reported. It is demonstrated that the lattice Boltzmann method is a promising alternative for DNS as it quantitatively captures
all the computed statistics of fluid turbulence.
