Abstract : This report describes state-of-the-art techniques for the measurement of hydrodynamic and hydroacoustic phenomena in high-Reynolds number liquid flows. Emphasis is on water tunnel testing. Topics covered include: test facility operations, boundary layers, multiphase fluid flows, body forces and moments, acoustics, and internal flows. This report will be published as a chapter in the book: Lecture Notes in Engineering - Advances in Fluid Mechanics Measurements, M. Gad-el-Hak, ed. (Springer-Verlag, 1988).
