Abstract

Some peculiar phenomena occur around ultrahigh-speed submerged water jets accompanied by very severe cavitation erosion. Using the flow visualization technique with a xenon flash, the water jets were carefully observed, and the spatial distributions of highly erosive impulsive pressures around the jets were measured by means of a pressure-sensitive film technique. The effects of the injection pressure and the nozzle configuration are systematically clarified. Thus, the characteristics and structures of ultrahigh-speed submerged water jets are clearly shown.
