Abstract:

In the Blow-down Water Tunnel at the California Institute of Technology, velocities of the order of 100 ftsec are readily obtainable in a 2-34-in. square working section. The apparatus is described and several of its features which make it particularly suitable for cavitation studies are emphasized. Operation is automatic and a device is described whereby the controls may be preset to yield a desired combination of tunnel static pressure and velocity. Author
