Abstract : This revised Handbook is a completely rewritten and updated version of the original 6Handbook of Cavitation Damage6 which was published under the auspices of the Office of Naval Research in 1965. This new edition contains the very latest information pertaining to scal-ing and the effects of fluid properties on Cavitation Erosion, as well as new field experiences with some of the Navy's high perfor-mance ships. Again, the scope of this Handbook ranges from the most basic theoretical cavitation concepts to practical guidance relevant to design, material selection, protection, and field re-pair procedures.
