842 “Vibratory Hull Forces Induced by Cavitating Propellers”



“Vibratory-Hull Forces Induced by Cavitating Propellers”, by Peter van Oossanen and Jan van der Kooy, Published in the Transactions of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, Vol. 115, pp. 111-144, 1973 (ID No. 842).

The subject of this paper is the effect of cavitation as manifested on marine propellers on the vibratory forces acting on the hull above. This effect is studied on the basis of the results of tests with a systematic series of propellers in the cavitation tunnel. The results reveal that the occurrence of cavitation on the blades of marine propellers significantly increases the vibratory forces on the hull.
