The mean and conditional temperature and velocity profiles and their correlations were measured in a heated jet of air. The conditional measurements were “zone” averaged measurements, taken only in the fully turbulent region of the flow field by using an electronic sampling technique. The zone averaged measurements were taken of the velocity, temperature, shear stress, and the velocity-temperature correlation at three axial stations: x/D = 35, 45, and 50. The jet Reynolds number (based on the jet slot width) was held constant at 1.43 × 104, with a jet exit temperature excess of θ = 35°C. The conditioned profiles show a large variation from the mean measurements in the fully turbulent region of the jet. The zone averaged measurements approach the mean only as the jet center line and jet interface is approached.
