Cavitation in Hydraulic Structures: Scale Effects Involved in Cavitation Experiments

by J. M. Robertson,

Serial Information: Journal of the Hydraulics Division, 1963, Vol. 89, Issue 3, Pg. 167-180

Document Type: Journal Paper


The general nature and purpose of experimental studies of cavitation-susceptible hydraulic structures is reviewed. Scale effects are defined as deviations in the cavitation occurrences from the simple concept of cavitation in a liquid of given density and vapor pressure, resulting from other fluid properties and occurrences.
