TAKEOFF EXPERIMENTS FOR A NEWLY DESIGNED HIGH SPEED SUPERCAVITATING HYDROFOIL (TAP-1)
The capability to design practical high speed struts and foils with low technical risk has not existed. Therefore, an investigative program was initiated to develop a data base and design criterion for these structures. The takeoff characteristics of a newly designed supercavitating hydrofoil system were experimentally evaluated at NSRDC. Experiments were conducted to find the most favorable combinations of flap angle and incidence angle for takeoff at various foil depths and to determine flow regimes at design takeoff lift conditions.
