Tests were conducted in a rotating disk facility to determine the effects of source size and velocity on cavitation damage in aluminum test specimens. To eliminate Reynolds number as a primary parameter, the shape of the cavitating source was chosen to be triangular. For a given relative velocity of the flow, there is an optimum size of the source for which the damage in the specimen is a maximum.
