Fifty Years of Supercavitating Flow Research in the United States: Personal RecoIlections

M. P. Tulin
University of California at Santa Barbara, USA


History of development of researches on supercavitation in the United States of America is stated in the article in the form of personal recollections. The review embraces fifty year period from creation of the linearized theory of supercavitating flows to appearance of designs of high-speed vehicles of the 21-st century. Besides the research chronology, technical problems of shipbuilding industry and aviation, which stimulated the development of researches on supercavitation, are described .by the author. References of foreign works on supercavitation including works fulfilled in Germany and USSR and exerted important influence on development of investigations on supercavitation in the USA are contained in this article.
