We investigate the scaling properties of the velocity circulation of a turbulent shear flow. We evaluate, using extended self-similarity, the circulation scaling exponents both at maximum and minimum shear regions. We show that the anomalous component of the velocity circulation and the anomalous component of the velocity structure functions are equal. © 1997 The American Physical Society.
