In order to simulate the cloud cavitation on hydraulic machinery, the unsteady cavitation on a rectangular wing section was observed in the cavitation channel of the Miyakonojo National College of Technology. The attack angle was forced to change from 10deg. to –10deg. by a strike of hammer. As the attack angle decreased, the sheet cavitation left the leading edge of wing and changed into cloud cavities on the mid-chord of wing.
