ON STABILITY AND VOLUME OF MARINE PROPELLER CAVITATION AND CORRESPONDING SPECTRAL DISTRIBUTION IN HULL PRESSURE FIELDS

Full scale investigations of propeller cavitation are necessary to identify important basic mechanisms causing vibrations as well as blade and nozzle erosion. Development of more advanced theoretical methods and model test procedures, including scale effects, require full scale correlation data. The main object of this paper is primarily to throw more light on our ability to produce equipment which can detect the phenomena stated: Blade cavity thickness; Time variations of blade cavitation; Amplitudes of propeller induced pressure fluctuations, - stability, phase relationship and spectral distributions and Natural ventilation of cavitation.
