Abstract
This paper reviews cavitation research on ship propellers performed in the recent past in MARIN’s Depressurized Towing Tank and cavitation tunnels. Cases are presented through which advances have been made possible in the design of propellers and ships, and unresolved issues that form the challenges of future research are discussed. Our focus is on cavitation inception, cavitation-induced hull-pressure fluctuations, and cavitation erosion on propeller blades and rudders.
