The objective of the work was to develop a numerical method for steady-state cavity flows to provide systematic correction of an initial, assumed free streamline position. The method is based on an inviscid, irrotational and incompressible flowfield, uses a numerical finite-difference representation with the fluid velocities as dependent variables, and obtains a solution by successive-overrelaxation. It has been implemented for two-dimensional fully cavitating flow past a vertical plate in a channel. Typical results and the computer program listing and output are given. Author
