Abstract : A laboratory study is described of the onset and development of cavitation in the turbulent eddies produced by the diffusing stream at an abrupt pipe enlargement. Evaluations of incipient cavitation, pressure distribution, head loss, and incipient boundary damage are presented for use in the design of highhead relief conduits. (Author)
