Unsteady characteristics of cavitating flow around an inclined rectangular cylinder with a width to height ratio of 8.0 were experimentally investigated for various angles of attack and cavitation numbers. Measurements of fluid dynamic force and surface pressure were made and the cavity configuration was observed with a camera. Especially considered are the self-oscillating unstable flow characteristics along with the time variation of cavity configuration. It is found that a severe vibration occurs at some cavitation number, in which the attached cavity is formed in the separation bubble. As the cavitation number further decreases, the low frequency fluctuation of flow occurs.
