FLUTTER INVESTIGATION OF A HIGH SPEED HYDROFOIL STRUT AND FOIL SYSTEM

A combination strut and hydrofoil system suitable for operation in cavitating flow was designed. The design was reproduced in a small-scale model and flutter tested. Projected results indicate that the design would be stable to at least 110 knots for one size prototype under certain flow conditions. Evaluation under other flow conditions must be performed to complete the investigation.
