Some New Measurements On the Drag of Cavitating Disks


As part of an experiment on unsteady flow past a cavitating circular disk, it was necessary to make calibrating measurements of the drag on disks in steady flow. The measurements were made for greater cavitation numbers than have been previously recorded, and show that the drag coefficient is essentially linearly dependent upon cavitation number up to values of this parameter as high as 1.3.
