This paper presents the result of a large-eddy simulation of the complicated turbulent flow past a square cylinder. The technique of embedded meshes is employed for the computation of turbulent flows with various scales. We also apply the 3rd-order upwind scheme (Kawamura et al., 1984) to the convective terms to avoid numerical instability.
