Summarizes how an institution like SSPA tries to fulfil one of its main tasks within the field of cavitation i.e. to supply results of theoretical and experimental research, useful for the improvement of propeller design methods. Within each of the subjects, cavitation inception, cavitation patterns, cavitation erosion and influence of cavitation on the vibratory forces from the propeller, some general trends indicated by the results of the research work at SSPA and elsewhere are given, and the limitations of available theories and experimental techniques are discussed. Some exceptions from the general trends are analysed.
