This paper provides an overview of several validation studies that were carried out for a Boundary Element Method (BEM) for ducted propellers. These studies comprise validation of open water characteristics, pressure distributions, blade forces at inclined inflow and steady and unsteady cavity extent. The results of the BEM are compared with model test data, RANS results and full scale cavitation observations.
