Dawson, Thomas Emmett (1959) An experimental investigation of a fully cavitating two-dimensional flat plate hydrofoil near a free surface. Engineer's thesis, California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-01272006-130656
A fully cavitating two-dimensional flat plate hydrofoil at and below a free surface was investigated. The effects of proximity to the free surface, angle of attack, cavitation number and Froude number or gravity on the normal force, the moment about the leading edge, the center of pressure location, the cavity length and the air flow rate into the cavity are discussed. Comparisons to other experiments and theories also are made.
