We present recent developments in application of the spectral element method (SEM) for the simulation of turbulent flows at petascale and beyond. We begin with a brief overview of the SEM as implemented in Nek5000.  We then discuss recent algorithmic advances, including:
- Efficient FEM-based preconditioners
- Nonconforming overlapping domain decomposition
- Multirate timestepping for for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations
- SEM-based compressible Navier-Stokes solutions
- Nonlinear stabilization
- High-performance GPU implementations
- Reduced-order models
