The direct numerical simulation (DNS) of the fully developed turbulent channel flows rotating along the streamwise direction with several rotation parameters and two Reynolds numbers is performed. The bulk mean velocity decreases with increasing the rotation parameter, but the decrement is weakened in the high Reynolds number case. Applying the second-kind Chebyshev polynomial expansion into the mean spanwise velocity, the second mode coefficient, which becomes large in the strong rotation, is greatly influenced by the Reynolds number effect. Due to the streamwise rotation, the derivative and integral length scales obtained from the streamwise two-point correlation are extended. From viewpoints of the quadrant analysis, spectral one and instantaneous visualization, the high correlation among three fluctuating velocity components appears and the low-speed streaks are accumulated in the strong rotation and high Reynolds number flow.
