The paper presents a collection of experimental data from particle image velocimetry and planar laser induced fluorescence methods containing local microstructures of fluid velocity and inert tracer concentration in jet reactors. The results of experiments, performed with resolution of the level of several microns, can be used for direct validation of CFD models, especially for timedependent mixing model used in large eddy simulations.
