This study aimed to measure pressure-related turbulence statistics such as the velocity-pressure or the pressure-strain correlations. To do so, the pressure field evaluation based on the velocity data measured by particle image velocimetry (PIV) was combined with direct single-point-measurement by miniature static pressure probes (SP-probe). The instantaneous pressure field was derived from the measurement results by PIV, and the pressure fluctuations associated with the large-scale vortex motion were extracted using the instantaneous pressure directly measured by the SP-probe as a reference signal. The measurement was taken in a turbulent near wake of a circular cylinder. After the validity of the instantaneous pressure evaluated from the PIV data was addressed, the velocity-pressure correlation and the pressure-strain correlation were investigated.
