Abstract

Cavitation activity as produced by sound waves in a liquid is a useful phenomenon. It has been successfully applied as a cleaning process. To increase equipment efficiency in this operation, tests were made to determine if standing wave formation affected the intensity of cavitation. This was accomplished by varying the liquid depth in multiples of the sound wave length. The results indicate that standing wave formation has a positive effect but only to a very small degree.
