EFFECT OF VARIOUS CONCENTRATIONS OF WSR-301 POLYETHYLENE OXIDE IN WATER UPON THE CAVITATION PERFORMANCE OF 1/4-INCH AND 2-INCH HEMISPHERICAL NOSED BODIES

In this investigation the effect of various concentrations of WSR-301 polyethylene oxide in water upon the cavitation performance of a 1/4-inch and a 2/inch hemispherical nosed bodies was measured. The data was acquired at a velocity of 40 fps for the 1/4-inch model and at a velocity of 60 fps for the 2-inch model. Polyox concentrations of 0 and 20 ppm were run during the tests of the 2-inch model. This program was conducted in a 12-inch continuous circuit water tunnel. The results are compared with those of previous investigators.
