A good description of the case is on [1]; in addition to results of the mentioned DNS databases, there are results of Code Saturne calculations using quite interesting RANS models.
This thest case correspond at the channelOodles tutorial (with a shorter geometry). Details of this geometry and comparaison of parameters such as mesh, turbulence model can be found in Eugene De Villier Ph'D ( and then Students and Ph'D thesis )
Notice that the postChannel tool give directly mean and statistics of the geometry.
