Abstract : The induced velocity field of a 3-bladed fully cavitating propeller was calculated by considering the combined effects of propeller blade loading and blade cavity thickness. Numerical results for the case investigated showed that forward of such a propeller the total induced axial velocity is quite small, and opposes the ambient axial velocity. This result is consistent with the experimental results presented where the thrust deduction of a fully cavitating propeller behind a hydrofoil was found to be practically zero. (Author)
