CAVITATION OBSERVATION TECHNIQUES IN THE NSMB DEPRESSURIZED TOWING TANK

A review is given of the cavitation observation techniques as used in the NSMB Depressurized Towing Tank. Special attention is paid to those observation and recording techniques which are suitable for studying the time-dependent behaviour of propeller cavitation. The paper also includes the description of a method, based on stereo photogrammetry, to determine the topology of the cavity on a propeller blade.
