In order to establish techniques of cutting, drilling, peening and flushing by high-speed submerged water-jets, we systematically observe the eroded surface on aluminum-alloy test-pieces in relation to the aspects of cavitating jets, especially for the impinging jet through lucite-test-pieces, for several types of nozzles. The impulsive pressures induced by the impinging jets are also measured by means of pressure-sensitive film. It is concluded that the erosion characteristics are quite different in two regions differentiated by the standoff distance. Cylindrical, small and deep pits occur in one of the regions, while small lots of plastic deformations occur in the other region. The former is suitable for cutting, while the latter is for peening.
