Strong velocity scale effect on cavitation for orifice tunnels was revealed through comparing the results of model tests in vacuum tanks and that of prototype measurements at construction site. A new formula predicting incipient cavitation number of orifice rings is presented in this paper. The predicted data for the prototype scale are coincident well with the prototype measured one.
