Abstract:

An attempt was made to understand the phenomenon of model and full scale cavitation correlation by investigating the simple case of a propeller operating in practically uniform flow. The results indicate that face cavitation depends on a number of parameters which in general are satisfied in the mean. It appears, however, that second order effects in those parameters may produce significant changes in the cavitation pattern. What is generally termed scale effect may, to a certain extent, result from our failure to satisfy second order effects. Author
