Measurements have been made using Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA) in a fully developed turbulent channel flow with the aim of determining second-order and third-order temporal and spatial structure functions of the longitudinal velocity fluctuation. A reliable determination of these moments requires the data to be corrected for the effect of noise. Correction procedures are outlined, based on the behaviour of temporal or spatial correlation functions in the limit of small time intervals or small separations. No a priori assumptions about the nature of the noise are made so that the procedure should be quite general. The corrected LDA data indicate that, especially for spatial separations, the effect of noise can be felt even within the inertial range. The corrected structure functions should allow an unambiguous assessment to be made of Taylor’s hypothesis and of the extended self-similarity (ESS) method; examples are given in each case. Temporal structure functions obtained by hot wire anemometry (HWA) are much less affected by noise than the LDA data.
