Paper Abstract

Cavitation problems on marine propellers were studied utilizing several high-speed photographic tools. Cavitation is discussed briefly to permit a better understanding of the photographic subject. Hycam movies at 7500 frames per second were taken to establish the general features of the cavitation process. The bubble collapse phase was then studied using a variable delay trigger and a submicrosecond duration flash. Schlieren methods were used to investigate shock wave generation by bubble collapse.
