CAVITATION RESEARCH AND ITS APPLICATION IN MARINE ENGINEERING

The Author deals with conditions required for the inception of cavitation and the relationship between laboratory experiments and full-scale experience. Particular emphasis is placed on factors which are not normally considered in a systematic fashion when attempting to predict full-scale conditions from laboratory experiments. New work on cavitation erosion and noise is presented with an interpretation of the results in the light of present knowledge. The dynamics of bubble growth are illustrated in a series of slides.
