Abstract

The linearized treatment of the flow over a partially cavitating single hydrofoil having a flat pressure surface and a circular-arc suction side is presented. The flow is treated as a two-dimensional, steady, inviscid flow. Further assumptions made are those of incompressibility and irrotationality. The results obtained are compared with experiment and generally good correlation is found for the ranges of validity of the linearization.
