Cavitation tests were conducted in the High Speed Water Tunnel on a proposed projectile with control surfaces on the nose. These tests were carried out in cooperation with Dr. Dergarabedian of the Thompson Laboratory, Naval Ordnance Test Station. Qualitative tests of this type which included a photographic study of nose fin cavitation have proved valuable in indicating necessary modifications of the projectiles and in indicating the direction which further studies might take.
