Abstract:

The generation of tip vortices from finite-span lifting surfaces degrades the overall effectiveness of these surfaces. An extensive literature survey pertaining to this viscous rollup phenomenon and the numerous concepts advanced for its alleviation has been made. Those concepts which appear applicable to delaying the formation of marine propeller tip vortex cavitation are highlighted, and further experimental investigations are recommended. Author
