Measurements of space–time correlations of longitudinal and normal velocity fluctuations and of temperature fluctuations support the existence of counter-rotating spanwise structures appearing alternately on opposite sides of the jet centreline in the self-preserving region of the flow. The frequency of these structures closely satisfies self-preservation. The asymmetric arrangement of the structures is first observed downstream of the position where the jet mixing layers nominally merge but upstream of the onset of self-preservation. Closer to the jet exit, the space–time correlations indicate the existence of spanwise structures that are symmetrical about the centreline.
