An experimental investigation was made to clarify the characteristics of oscillating cavitation on a flat plate hydrofoil in a water tunnel. Dynamic the behavior of oscillating cavitation is discussed from the unsteady pressure measurements at the upstream of the blade and the visual observations of cavitation phenomena using high-speed video recording. It was found that the mean cavity length characterizes the fundamental characteristics of cavity oscillation. The cavity oscillations are categorized into two types, i.e. the transitional cavity oscillation and the partial cavity oscillation.
