Experimental Study of the Inertial Motion of Supercavitating Models

Chapter

Abstract

The paper gives a brief overview of various types of available facilities for the experimental study of the high-speed inertial motion of supercavitating bodies in water. The paper reports the procedure of the experimental studies of high-speed supercavitating models which have been conducted at the Hydrodynamics Laboratory of the Institute of Hydromechanics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine under the direction of Yu.N. Savchenko since 1990. The design philosophy of the electrochemical-catapult model firing system and the motion parameter recording system is described. The paper gives examples of model firing and reports the values of the initial parameters, video-recording data on the motion of a supercavitating model, and motion parameter values for models moving with a system of shock waves.
