STUDY ON THE CHARACTERISTICS OF PROPELLER CAVITATION AND ITS NOISE

The cavitation noise radiated from propulsors is the major part of the hydrodynamic noise on ships. The authors' latest research in this area is presented with reference to both full scale and model experiment results. The sections of the paper deal with, respectively: the relation between cavitation and its noise, cavitation noise from controllable pitch propellers, the directionality of cavitation noise, evaluation for noise reduction, and a theoretical approach to the prediction of cavitation noise.
