Data and observations obtained during the study of two-phase flow phenomena for refrigerants flowing in small bore copper and glass tubes have been examined for their significance to the cavitation. Visual and photographic observations have been made of the inception of vaporization and of the movement of the point of inception as operating conditions are varied. Liquid tension has been deduced as occurring in these tests. Liquid tension and cavitation index data are presented. The experimental method is recommended as a means for studying many aspects of the phenomenon of cavitation.
