Abstract:

A linearized theory for the unsteady motion of a partially cavitated flat hydrofoil in two dimensions is carried out. A second linearization procedure is used, based on ideas of Timman and Guerst, to obtain the unsteady pressure distribution around the hydrofoil and the resulting force and moment, as functions of the cavitation number and Strouhal number for given pitch andor heave.
