Large eddy simulation of compressible, homogeneous, isotropic, decaying turbulence in a rectangular box is performed using finite volume techniques. An analysis of the energy spectra obtained from the simulations shows that an agreement with the Kolmogorov law for the inertial range is found only when an appropriate spatial discretization method is used. This agreement is obtained both for a low (0·05) and a moderate (0·6) Mach number when Smagorinsky's subgrid model is employed.
