A supersonic jet at an NPR of 3.6 impinging upon a cylindrical section at z/D = 3.5 is investigated using particle image velocimetry. POD illustrates that a stationary flapping mode dominates the flow, containing ≈ 40% of the specific kinetic energy. Instantaneous measurements show acoustic waves propagating in the entrainment field. Based on the separation of these waves and an estimated wave speed of 332.5m/s, a frequency estimation of 8240Hz is obtained, which compares well to the microphone measurement of 8301Hz. A phase average is used to determine the convective velocity of the coherent structures. A range of 0.42-0.54Uj is obtained and the velocity used to estimate the sound source location, with good agreement with previous research.
