To elucidate clear the behavior of ambient-and inflow-cavitation-nuclei distributions associated with high-speed submerged water-jet tests, we systematically measured the distributions, and the change in them with time by means of a Coulter counter. These distributions are one of the most dominant parameters in all ambient and inflow types of cavitation. It was shown that our test facility is very suitable for high-speed submerged-water-jet tests, and it was also noted that the distributions varied in the test water with high-pressure treatment applied by a plunger pump.
