We simulate by the lattice Boltzmann method the steady shearing of a binary fluid mixture with full hydrodynamics in three dimensions. Contrary to some theoretical scenarios, a dynamical steady state is attained with finite correlation lengths in all three spatial directions. Using large simulations, we obtain at moderately high Reynolds numbers apparent scaling exponents comparable to those found by us previously in two dimensions (2D). However, in 3D there may be a crossover to different behavior at low Reynolds number: accessing this regime requires even larger computational resources than used here.
