Abstract/Summary The specification and overall design of the new Australian Maritime College Cavitation Tunnel is presented. This facility has been funded under the Australian Government Major National Research Facilities Program as part of the Australian Maritime Hydrodynamics Research Centre (AMHRC). The AMHRC is a joint venture between the Australian Maritime College, the Defence Science and Technology Organisation and the University of Tasmania. The facility has been developed for naval hydrodynamics research with particular emphasis on the modelling of cavitating and turbulent flow physics. Development of circuit architecture and components are discussed in detail as well as ancillary systems. The facility’s specific capabilities include the ability to strictly control circuit water gas content (both dissolved and free), continuous high-volume injection and separation of incondensable gases, control of the boundary layer on one wall of the test section, and low background noise and vibration levels.
