This study investigated the effects of seawater on cavitation noise using a water jet test, a two-dimensional wing test, and a three-dimensional wing test. A model propeller cavitation test was conducted in a cavitation tunnel using seawater, in order to determine the effects of propeller cavitation more precisely. In the cavitation tests, measured propeller performance for both cavitation noise inception and desinence, as well as the cavitation noise spectrum (see, for example, figure 7). On the basis of the results of the present propeller cavitation test and tests that were carried out previously, we discuss how to control the water quality in the cavitation tunnel to reproduce the cavitation phenomena, especially cavitation noise, in seawater (see, for example, figure 9).
