FULL-SCALE OBSERVATION OF CAVITATION ON DUCTED PROPELLER
The results of this study have shown that, for the case of a ducted propeller, the intensity of tip vortex which occurs after a blade has passed the top position is larger than that for a non-ducted propeller. The air injected into the duct is effective in preventing cavitation erosion. Through acoustic observation by hydrophone, the efect of air injection on noise was detected at 30, 60 and 90 cu Nm/hr. It is considered that larger air injection would be still more effective. Order from: BSRA as No. 48,761.
