Recently Tulin and Wu have treated the problem of fully developed cavitation on flat plate and cambered foils. In these treatments, the length of the cavity is always greater than the chord of the hydrofoil and the cavity is assumed to start at the leading edge of the plate. The purpose of this note is to extend Tulin's work to account for partial cavitation, i.e., when the cavitation bubble is less than the hydrofoil chord.
