résumé Two Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) of a converging-diverging channel flows were performed at Reτ = 395 and Reτ = 617. The present DNS of adverse pressure gradient flow were designed within the WALLTURB project to meet two main objectives. The first one was to gather three-dimensional fully re- solved data in order to investigate statistics and coherent structures of turbulence under strong pressure gradient with and without curvature. The second one was to have a reference for the evaluation of RANS and LES models. The flow slightly sep- arates at the lower curved wall and is at the onset of separation at the opposite flat wall. Intense vortices are generated at the location of the minimum friction velocity even without averaged recirculation. The full budget of the Reynolds stresses were computed along the channel at both walls. The occurrence of a well documented secondary peak of velocity fluctuations due to adverse pressure gradient is shown to be the consequence of a very strong production peak.
