In many simulations of turbulent flows, the viscous forces $\nu\nabla^2 \bu$ are replaced by a hyper-viscous term $-\nu_p(-\nabla^2)^{p}\bu$ in order to suppress the effect of viscosity at the large scales. In this work we examine the effect of hyper-viscosity on decaying turbulence for values of p ranging from p=1 (ordinary viscosity) up to p=100. Our study is based on direct numerical simulations of the Taylor-Green vortex for resolutions from 5123 to 20483. Our results demonstrate that the evolution of the total energy E and the energy dissipation ϵ remain almost unaffected by the order of the hyper-viscosity used. However, as the order of the hyper-viscosity is increased, the energy spectrum develops a more pronounced bottleneck that contaminates the inertial range. At the largest values of p examined, the spectrum at the bottleneck range has a positive power-law behavior E(k)∝kα with the power-law exponent α approaching the value obtained in flows at thermal equilibrium α=2. This agrees with the prediction of Frisch et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 101, 144501 (2008)] who suggested that at high values of p, the flow should behave like the truncated Euler equations (TEE). Nonetheless, despite the thermalization of the spectrum, the flow retains a finite dissipation rate up to the examined order, which disagrees with the predictions of the TEE system implying suppression of energy dissipation. We reconcile the two apparently contradictory results, predicting the value of p for which the hyper-viscous Navier-Stokes goes over to the TEE system and we discuss why thermalization appears at smaller values of p.
