“A Method for Minimizing the Occurrence of Cavitation on Propellers in a Wake”, by Peter van Oossanen, Published in “International Shipbuilding Progress”, Vol. 18, No. 205, pp. 321-333, September 1971 (ID No. 4445).
Guidelines are presented in this paper on how to improve the cavitation properties of screw propellers operating in the wake of the hull. General rules concerning the choice of propeller diameter, rotational speed, direction of rotation, blade area ratio, radial load distribution, and blade section shaping are considered.
