The paper investigates the destruction-of-dissipation tensor εεij in low-Reynolds number turbulent plane channel flow. This tensor, which represents the destruction of the dissipation tensor εij (appearing in the budgets of the covariances of fluctuating velocities rij) by molecular viscosity, exhibits specific near-wall anisotropy and is not 2-C at the wall. The budgets of εεij (turbulent and viscous diffusion, pressure-term, various production mechanisms, and destruction by molecular viscosity εεεij) are studied and various scaling relations are examined.
