Self-similar three-dimensional nonlinear solutions are found in a fully developed round jet at high Reynolds numbers. These solutions satisfy the Navier-Stokes equations with the multiple scale far-field approximation and can be converted into travelling waves after a certain coordinate transformation. Analysis of these solutions may help in the theoretical understanding of the coherent structures in turbulent jets.
