The problem of simulating a 3d stationary gaussian random function is considered. The turning bands method is a stereological device designed to reduce a 3d simulation into unidimensional ones. This paper mainly deals with the practical implementation of this method.

Keywords : Gaussian random function, spectral method, turning bands method
