In this study of attached cavities on an axisymmetric headform, measurements were made of the noise generated by the cavitation. In addition to hydrophone recordings, a new technique employing flush mounted electrodes was used to measure the steady state and dynamic volume fluctuations of the attached cavities. The spectra of the noise are quite featureless and show some decrease in the high frequency content as the cavities become larger. However, the spectra from the electrode measurement show some distinct frequencies of fluctuation.
