We report recent results from a high-resolution numerical study of fluid particles transported by a fully developed turbulent flow. Single-particle trajectories were followed for a time range spanning more than three decades, from less than a tenth of the Kolmogorov timescale up to one large-eddy turnover time. We present some results concerning acceleration statistics and the statistics of trapping by vortex filaments.
