Hot-wire measurements of velocity and temperature fluctuations have been made in the self-preserving turbulent wake region of a heated cylinder. Second order statistics including Reynolds fluxes, , are determined along with relevant triple correlations appearing in the Reynolds stress and Reynolds flux transport equations. The primary aim with these measurements is to study different modelling levels for passive scalar quantities. Models for the pressure scalar-gradient correlation, appearing in the transport equation of the Reynolds fluxes, are compared to measured data. A significant improvement of the simplest model, , is achieved by including a model for the rapid term that is linear in the mean velocity gradients. The mixed timescale, , seems to be an appropriate choice for τ. Also models for the triple correlations, , are compared with the experiments.
