This paper provides an overview of the equipment developed and the techniques
implemented so boundary layer behaviour may be examined within the Australian
Maritime College Cavitation Tunnel. This work was conducted as part of a larger project
to understand the flow about Unmanned Underwater Vehicles. A summary of some results
for flow about a prolate spheroid is provided and discussed. These tests for the spheroid
were conducted at Reynolds Numbers of 1×10 to the power of6 to 4×10 to the power of 6.
