The oblique entry of a two-dimensional, fully ventilated foil into a horizontal layer of water of arbitrary thickness is considered. When the thickness of the layer is finite, exit of the foil from the layer is studied. The present work is an extension of a previous one in which only vertical entry and exit of the foil were considered. The consideration of oblique entry makes the present solution useful in studying not only the advance ratio effect on a partially submerged supercavitating propeller but also many other problems, such as the high-speed water entry and exit of a wing or a control surface, the operation of a high-speed hydrofoil in a high sea state. The results obtained in this work indicate that the force and moment coefficients of a foil decrease as the advance ratio is reduced.
