The present paper summarizes the results of experimental studies on cavitation noise generated in the free-jet tunnel at St. Anthony Falls Hydraulic Laboratory in the period October 1960 to June 1961. Two-dimensional test bodies of different shapes, such as a circular cylinder, wedge, and a Tulin-Burkhart hydrofoil were tested. Various types of cavitating flows, namely, transient cavities, steady-state cavities, and non-stationary cavities were covered. Special attention was given to the
effect of ventilation on the intensity of cavitation noise. Effects of body
size and the presence of a solid boundary were also investigated.
