NUMERICAL COMPUTATIONS OF SUPERCAVITATING HYDROFOILS OF PARABOLIC SHAPE WITH WU AND WANG'S EXACT METHOD

Wu and Wang in 1963 proposed a method to solve a system of nonlinear integral equations obtained to determine the supercavitating (s/c) flow past arbitrary hydrofoil shapes in which a functional iterative method was used. The application of the method is presently concerned with arbitrary-shaped s/c hydrofoils, especially with those having rounded leading edges, since there have been no such successful results up to date. The rounded nosed body in the present paper was a parabolic strut and the position of the upper cavity separation point and the body thickness were changed in several ways while the cavitation number was fixed to be zero throughout the investigation.
