Abstract:

In this investigation the effect of various concentrations of WSR-301 polyethylene oxide in water upon the cavitation performance of a 14-inch and a 2-inch hemispherical nosed bodies was measured. The data were acquired at a velocity of 40 fps for the 14-inch model and at a velocity of 60 fps for the 2-inch model. Polyox concentrations of 0 and 20 ppm were run during the tests of the 2-inch model. This program was conducted in a 12-inch continuous circuit water tunnel. The results are compared with those of previous investigators.
