Some measurements in a synthetic turbulent boundary layer (SBL) are reported. The main diagnostic tool is an X-wire probe. The celerity of the large eddies is determined to be 0.842 u∞. The mean properties of the SBL are reasonably close to those of a natural turbulent boundary layer. The large eddy in the SBL appears to be a pair of counter-rotating eddies in the stream direction, inclined at a shallow angle and occupying much of the boundary-layer thickness.
