A new highly resolved large-eddy simulation was presented for a spatially developing turbulent boundary layer, covering in a single domain the range Re_\theta = 180-8300. Turbulence statistics and integral values are in close agreement with experiments and other simulations. The evolution of the large outer-layer structures was examined using spectra and a k_z-1 range was observed for the streamwise velocity.
