Measurements were made of the drag forces acting on projectile noses rotating at zero yaw about an axis parallel to the direction of the approaching flow. The noses were rotating in the cavity formed at a cavitation number of about 0.29, based upon the approach velocity. Thus, only the front portion of the nose was in contact with the water.
