In order to clarify structures of high-speed submerged water jets and to predict the jet working capacity, we systematically measured the cavitation noise around the jets using a hydrophone, for several nozzles. The power spectra and the rms values of the cavitation noise are carefully analyzed. Clearly, cavitation noise created by the jets is related to the behavior of cavitation bubble clouds, and the cavitation noise characteristics are markedly changed with the injection pressure and nozzle geometry.
