It's well known, that the imploding cavitation bubbles causes the damage on the solid surfaces. This process is then dangerous for the mechanical parts of the hydraulic machines. Proposed article dealing with the analysis of the type of the damage caused by the cavitation erosion according to the selected metallic material of the specimen. As is shown in the article, the type of the damage has a realtion to the hydraulic parameters of the flow (velocity, cavitation number). The optical and weight measerument methods will be used for the anlysis.
