Experimental data of velocity fields in a water tunnel at moderate Reynolds numbers have been used to check the notion of extended self-similarity and generalized extended self- similarity. Experimental evidence is shown that the self-scaling behavior of structure functions at moderate Reynolds number () is the same as the one expected for fully developed turbulence.
