Spatial coherence of the streamwise velocity fluctuation was measured in the wake of a flat plate in a wind tunnel. The measurements were made in the context of determining the role of wavenumber resonance in quadratic interactions among resonant frequency modes. Frequency domain results show that sum-interaction modes targeted by coupled mode pairs are spatially coherent. This suggests that spatial coherence measurements can be combined with bispectral measurements to determine mode energy transit and direction.
