KINDS OF CAVITATION Here we see a hydrofoil exhibiting partial cavitation. A hydrofoil is a "lifting" surface. It is like an airplane wing in that it provides lift when a fluid flows past it.

Cavitation is a concern for plant operators and maintenance personnel because it can reduce plant availability and profitability. Cavitation not only decreases flow capability
Introduction Cavitation has been a familiar phenomenon fora longtime particularly in shipping. In 1917, the British physicist Lord Rayleighwasasked to investig ate what caused fast-rotating ship propellers to erode so quickly.
