Abstract

Experimental results obtained by measuring the drag, wall pressure fluctuations, and radiated sound from a compliantly coated cylinder, 21 inches in diameter, and rotating in water are described. The compliant layer was a 1/4-inch thick closed cell, air-filled neoprene which was mounted on the 3/8-inch thick aluminum cylinder walls. Results are presented for four speed conditions; one condition is below the speed where a sudden increase in drag is obtained, and the other speed conditions are at and above this critical speed. In general, the results indicate a surface which becomes increasingly more roughened as the critical speed is exceeded.
