DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR PROPELLERS IN A CAVITATING ENVIRONMENT

Cavitation adds a dimension to propeller operation that necessitates rational design practice to approach a good balance of craft requirements. This paper discusses propeller characteristic format to reduce the computation time to make performance predictions and propeller selection for partially and fully cavitating conditions. In addition, maximum propeller thrust and torque loading limits are defined for four different blade section shapes, including recommended design limits.
