VIBRATORY FORCES ON A SIMULATED HULL SURFACE PRODUCED BY TRANSIENT PROPELLER CAVITATION

An experimental setup is described for the measurement of propeller-induced vibratory force on a simulated segment of hull surface located above a model propeller operating in a water tunnel. Measurements are made of the influence of transient cavitation induced by a wake screen on the vibratory force. These experiments confirm recent observations that, in many cases, hull vibratory excitation is completely dominated by transient propeller cavitation.
