Experimental force measurements on several truncated cone-cylinder bodies operating in full cavity flow are reported. Lift, drag and pitching moment coefficients and the center of pressure are presented as functions of angle of attack for cavitation numbers from 0.02 to 0.06. The lift and drag coefficients are compared with predicted results which are based on the summation of the forces on individual body components. Discrepancies between the experimental and the predicted results are discussed.
