Abstract : This is an investigation of tip-wall vortex cavitation in axial-flow pumps. This form of cavitation occurs in pumps, and its effects need to be minimized. Because this form of vortex cavitation is not completely understood, a study of it is required. A relationship is required to predict the trends in tip-wall cortex cavitation. (Author)
