CAVITATION: HYDROFOILS. 1964-APRIL, 1980 (CITATIONS FROM THE NTIS DATA BASE)
Studies are presented on the cavitation characteristics of various classes of hydrofoils such as fully submerged, ventilated, high speed, supercavitating, and jet flapped. Surface piercing struts are studied. Test facilities, models, and test methods are described. Discussions are made of lift, drag, oscillation, flutter, heaving, hydroelasticity, and loading. Other topics include entrainment, bubbles, unsteady forces, flow fields, sea states, cavitation noise, mathematical models, and boundary layers, along with investigations of hydrofoil craft performance. (This updated bibliography contains 194 abstracts, 9 of which are new entries to the previous edition.)
