In order to establish a useful monitoring method for predicting the erosion induced by high-speed submerged water jets, we attempt to clarify the relation between the jet-structure and the cavitation noise arising around the free jets, by using two hydrophones, and also analyze the AE characteristics of the impulsive pressures induced by cavitation on the specimen of the impinging jets. It is found that the energies of high-frequency components in the jets change markedly with the injection pressure and the standoff distance. It is found that the AE characteristics are closely related to the impinging erosion.
