The Particle Image Velocimetry is utilized to investigate flow behind a cylinder of finite length with subcritical value of Aspect Ratio (AR). The cylinder is submitted to uniform freestream with very low intensity of turbulence and thin laminar boundary layer. The flow field cannot be expected as 2D even for time-averaged quantities. The Strouhal number is evaluated in various planes of measurement. The wake is fully turbulent and is composed of many streamwise and spanwise-oriented structures. Such complex flow is very convenient to be subjected to dynamical decomposition analysis.
