VENTuRE project: CAVEAT (CAVitation Experimentation Acquisition Technology)

The cavitation phenomenon, also known as cold boiling, occurs at distinct high-velocity, high-pressure marine conditions that results vapour bubbles along structural surfaces. The vapour bubbles lead to erosion and hence induce significant damage to ship propellers and rudders. The VENTuRE project is proud to provide knowledge-exchange support for the MarSA-funded CAVEAT (CAVitation Experimentation Acquisition Technology)…
