This study presents the development of a single-scale initial velocity field into steady homogeneous isotropic turbulence. Here, we verify a constructed Fourier spectral analysis, which is then used to approach the present issue. The present homogeneous isotropic turbulence is maintained steady by using a linear forcing scheme of Lundgren (2003). Here, two values of the primary coefficient are set here for this scheme. The initial velocity field is also set to maintain the flow globally isotropic. Temporal developments of turbulence statistics, visualization results and structure functions are examined in this study. As shown in a previous study, Rosales and Meneveau (2005), the turbulence length scale at a steady-state could remain independent of a value used for the linear forcing coefficient. The turbulence fields needed 10 to 15 times longer than the turbulence time scale to achieve this steady-state. A larger amount of time was needed for the structure functions to reach their steady-state profiles than for the turbulence statistics.
