Abstract
A propeller drive apparatus has been built at the Acoustics Barge at the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic. The paper describes this cavitation noise facility, reviews the theory and practice behind the measurement technique, and presents some results from tests with three different propellers. These tests included cavitation observations, far-field radiated noise and directivity measurements, and acoustic source localization.
