An experimental study of cavitation occurrence in benzene, kerosene, gasoline, and Freon 12 was conducted using a square-edged orifice. The experimental results of the desinent cavitation number are compared with the calculated values predicted from two-phase flow analogy. The predicted values show reasonable agreement with experimental data for benzene and gasoline but require some modifications for kerosene and Freon 12.
