The current investigation examines a 2 inch, circular, high-speed jet with two separate PIV setups simultaneously sampled with far-field pressure. Subsonic and supersonic velocity measurements are performed in the streamwise (r-z) plane of the jet with both time-resolved PIV and large window PIV configurations, taken at different times. The 10 kHz time-resolved PIV captures 1.5 streamwise diameter windows at several downstream locations. The large window PIV utilizes 3 simultaneously captured cameras stitched together to view a single interrogation window of the flow field approximately 2.5-9 stream-wise diameters from the nozzle lip. Both PIV setups have an approximately 1.5 diameter spatial window in the radial direction. In this paper, we will focus on the Mach 0.6 flow in the region of the potential core collapse (z/D = 6-7.5). Low-dimensional modeling techniques in the form of proper orthogonal decomposition, Lumley (1967)2 and Sirovich (1987),3 are implemented in order to help us understand the large scale, energetic events within the flow. In previous work, the time-dependent POD modes from the TRPIV have been correlated with the far-field acoustics to determine which low-dimensional structures best relate to the noise. These correlated events are deemed as "loud" modes, Low et al. (2013).4 One issue is that this approach is greatly in fluenced by the temporal and spatial nature of the PIV. By utilizing the differences in our PIV setups, we map the convergence of POD modes based on their spatial and temporal resolution.
