Abstract : Measured spanwise distributions of oscillatory lift and moment of surface-piercing cantilever subcavitating hydrofoils are presented. The hydrofoils were of aspect ratio 5 rectangular planform, 65.5% submerged. The data are compared with measured data from the same models fully submerged. (Author)
