This paper reports an experimental study of turbulent three-dimensional generic wall jets and offset jets. The jets were created from a long circular pipe. A particle image velocimetry technique was used to conduct velocity measurements in the symmetry plane of the jet. From these measurements, the salient features of the flows are reported in terms of the mean velocities, turbulence intensities and Reynolds shear stresses. The energy spectra and profiles of reconstructed turbulence intensities and Reynolds shear stresses from low order proper orthogonal decomposition modes are also reported.
