THE THIN-HYDROFOIL THICKNESS PROBLEM INCLUDING LEADING-EDGE CORRECTIONS

The method of Keldysh and Lavrentiev is used to study the potential flow of a uniform stream past a submerged thin symmetric hydrofoil. An expression for the surface speed is obtained and the method of matched asymptotic expansions is used to develop corrections at the round leading edge. The pressure, lift, drag, and pitching moment are presented for the Joukowski hydrofoil with emphasis on the variation with thickness, Froude number, and chord-to-depth ratio.
