Abstract: The paper deals with the visualisation of transient cavitating flow in piping systems. A high-speed video-system is used to record liquid column separation events in an experimental apparatus. The apparatus comprises a straight 37.2 m long sloping pipeline of 22 mm internal diameter, connecting two pressurised tanks. A discrete vapour cavity and vaporous cavitation zone were observed in the pipeline following downstream end rapid valve closure. The results of measurements (flow visualisation and pressure measurement) are compared to the discrete gas cavity model results. There are minor discrepanlfies between the computed and measured results
