An experimental investigation of a laminar-turbulent transition in a round jet flowing from a cylindrical tube with a diameter of 3.2 mm have been carried out. The range of Reynolds numbers in the experiments Re = Ud / v were of 700-12000. The measurements have been carried out via the PIV system. The profiles of average velocities and their pulsations in the laminar-turbulent transition zone have been obtained, as well as axial distributions of the longitudinal velocity and longitudinal velocity pulsations. Based on a comparison with the data of other authors, the effect of the initial conditions on the laminar-turbulent transition in a submerged jet has been shown.
