This work is devoted to the study of turbulent natural convection flows in differentially heated cavities. The adopted configuration corresponds to an air-filled (Pr = 0.7) cavity of aspect ratio 5 and Rayleigh number Ra = 4.5 × 1010 (based on the cavity height). Firstly, a complete
direct numerical simulation (DNS) has been performed. Then, the DNS results have been used as reference solution to assess the performance of symmetry-preserving regularization as a simulation shortcut: a novel class of regularization that restrain the convective production of small scales
of motion in an unconditionally stable manner. In this way, the new set of equations are dynamically less complex than the original Navier-Stokes equations, and therefore more amenable to be numerically solved. Time-averaged DNS results have revealed that the transition of the vertical boundary layer occurs at more downstream
positions than those observed in the experiments.
