Measuring Lagrangian velocities in a turbulent flow is of a great interest for turbulence modeling. We report measurements made in an axisymmetric turbulent air jet at Reynolds number R λ ≃ 320, using acoustical Doppler scattering. Helium-filled soap bubbles are used as Lagrangian tracers. We describe an experimental setup which allows the simultaneous measurement of the full three-component Lagrangian velocity and the longitudinal Eulerian one. Lagrangian velocity probability density functions (PDF) are found Gaussian, close to Eulerian ones. Velocity correlations are analysed as well as the statistical dependence between components.
