An efficient multigrid driven scheme, originally developed for the solution of Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations is modified and tested for large eddy simulation. The formulation is initially based on a Smagorinsky model, but it is general enough to allow for more advanced SGS models. The fully implicit time marching method is implemented on parallel computers using message-passing. This study concentrates on two aspects: Verification and validation against results of Direct Numerical Simulation and evaluation of efficiency of our approach. This is a first step towards performing large eddy simulations at high Reynolds number and on realistic geometry.
