The fundamental aspects of the flow simulation methodology (FSM) for computing turbulent shear flow were analyzed. It was found that the turbulent flow physics depends on the interaction between outer coherent structures and near-wall boundary layer. The centerpiece of FSM was to provide proper amount of modeling of the subgrid scales. The results show the potential of FSM for calculating complex turbulent flows.
