CAVITATION. PART 3. CORROSION AND EROSION (A BIBLIOGRAPHY WITH ABSTRACTS)
Corrosion and erosion effects of cavitation are documented. Many research areas are covered, with the exception of turbines, which are reported in Part 4 of this series. Studies are presented on marine propellers, pumps, dams, and spillways. Space power systems are included. The discussions refer to bubble and microbubble investigations, concepts and theories of damage, scaling laws, mathematical models, numerical analysis, and computerized simulation. Studies are given of erosion prevention, hydroabrasive wear, metal and elastomeric surface protection, and raindrop resistance. Other topics are vibration, liquid-solid interfaces, viscoelasticity, dissolved and contained gases, and flow fields, such as cryogenic, liquid metal and multiphase. Test equipment, methods, models, and findings are described. (This updated bibliography contains 134 abstracts, 7 of which are new entries to the previous edition.)
