In the present paper, the behaviour of compressible anisotropic turbulence is investigated using Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS). The computational code is based on a finite volume formulation of the explicit predictor-corrector MacCormack scheme. Decay simulations of homogeneous turbulence are carried out through specifying a constant mean flow and adding an initial anisotropic fluctuating velocity field. A specific parameterization of anisotropy allows us to explore several anisotropic decay situations. The impact of the nature of the initial anisotropic turbulence on turbulent kinetic energy decay is underlined. A specific decomposition of the turbulent kinetic energy budget permits to study the return to-isotropy phenomenon.
