Abstract : Problems related to the appearance and development of cavitation in flow of fluid in locally constricted channels are examined. An equation is derived to link the parameters of three channel sections - at the entry, in the jet section, and at the exit - for the case of separating flow; it is confirmed by experimental data for cold and hot water and kerosene.
