Abstract

The purpose of this experimental study is to determine the contour of the distorted water surface behind a hydrofoil operating at shallow depths of submergence. The effects of foil depth, Froude Number, and the angle of attack were investigated for a non-cavitating hydrofoil without any flap deflections. The characteristics of the surface depression behind a foil are important when considering the applications of canard or tandem foil systems. A theoretical analysis of the same phenomena is being made by Daniel Ai and a comparison between theory and experiment will be made in the near future.
