Cavitating jets are widely used for cleaning, cutting, improving material strength and so forth. This paper describes the erosive intensity measurement of a cavitating jet with various nozzle configurations. Two cross-shaped nozzles, one circular nozzle with two cross wires, and two nozzles with swirl vanes, were tested. The authors expected an increase of erosive intensity to come about by the use of these nozzles, as a result of the deformation of the vortex ring in the cavitating jet. However, the experimental results reveal a decrease of erosive intensity contrary to expectations.
