The anisotropy of the Reynolds stress tensor is assessed from numerical and experimental data for an underexpanded supersonic jet. Shock structures are shown both to directly influence anisotropy within the jet core, as well as to modulate anisotropy within the shear layer. The jet shear layer is mostly characterized by three-component turbulence, with complex variation within the jet core due to both shock and expansion structures, as well as the interior shear layer generated from the Mach disk triple point.
