The development of a continuous turbulence model that is suitable for representing both the subgrid scale stresses in large eddy simulation and the Reynolds stresses in the Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes formulation is described. A recursion approach is used to bridge the length scale disparity from the cutoff wavenumber to those in the energy-containing range. The proposed model is analyzed in conjunction with direct numerical simulations of Kolmogorov flows.
