An investigation of limited cavitation was conducted on three different axisymmetric models. Test models included a hemispherical nose, a Schiebe nose, and a David Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center (DTNSRDC) nose. All models had a 2.0-in. diameter. Theoretical pressure distribution calculations and laminar boundary layer growth calculations were performed for the above models which were subsequently tested and also for a 1.5-caliber ogive nose, a 1.0-caliber ogive nose, and an International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC) nose to serve as supplementary information. The test models were chosen in accordance with their boundary layer flow characteristics. Laminar boundary layer separation was predicted to occur on the hemispherical nose for all test velocities. Calculations for the Schiebe nose indicated that laminar boundary layer separation does not occur and, therefore, this model exhibits an attached boundary layer for all velocities Laminar separation was predicted for the DTNSRDC nose; however, this model has a relatively low critical Reynolds number. As a result, the DTNSRDC nose exhibits laminar separation at low velocities and an attached boundary layer at high velocities.
