Statistics on spin down for different Re
this database features:
statistics of four different spin-down simulations at different Re=\Omega R^2/\nu;
global volume-averaged data for turbulent kinetic engery (k), mean kinetic energy (K) and their budget equations;
temporal evolution of 1D quantities such as wall-shear stress, boundary-layer thickness;
temporal evolution of spatially (over z and \phi) averaged bulk data such as mean velocity, Reynolds-stresses etc.;
terms of the k and K budget equations as function of t and r.
The financial support by the German Research Foundation (DFG) under Priority Programme SPP-1881 is greatly acknowledged.

folders for different Re: Re3000, Re6000, Re12000, Re28000
each folder contains:
tot.dat --> 1D data such as wall-velocity, boundary-layer thickness,
volume average K, volume average k etc.
t.dat --> time steps (spacing dt increases during late stages of decay)
r.dat --> radial positions of the grid
bulk --> folder: contains dat files for non-zero bulk quantities as functions of r and t.
mean velocity, mean vorticity, velocity in wall units, Reynolds stresses
mke --> folder: contains terms of the K budget equation as functions of r and t:
K, production, dissipation, turbulent transport, viscous transport
tke --> folder: contains terms of the TKE budget equation as functions of r and t:
k, production, dissipation, turbulent transport, viscous transport, pressure diffusion
