The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of kinetic energy conservation error on isotropic and anisotropic steady incompressible turbulence fields. Results were obtained from time series of turbulent kinetic energy and static pressure fluctuation. A standard large-eddy simulation (LES) was used in the numerical analysis. The conservation error was generated using the Crank-Nicolson method. The result obtained using the fourth-order Runge-Kutta method was used to set results of reference. The effects of the conservation error on the mean value of the global turbulent kinetic energy were found to be small. On the other hand, it was found that the time series and mean values of static pressure fluctuation root mean square (rms) were sensitive to the conservation error. This discrepancy in the static pressure fluctuation rms was able to be reduced by adjusting the value of the model constant used in the LES. However, this adjusted model constant caused an error in the global turbulent kinetic energy. These results were found in both isotropic and anisotropic turbulence fields.
