A computer aided inverse design method for supercavitating hydrofoils was given recently by Parkin and Fernandez. This method uses a linearized cavity flow theory to determine the wetted surface shape from a prescribed pressure distribution and to evaluate its overall performance parameters, while controlling the cavity thicknesses at two points along the chord. The numerical analysis for this design method is discussed in this report and the computer program is listed. Author
