In modern ship design problems related to cavitation can be solved successfully by properly designing the surfaces of propeller blades, rudders, shaft struts, etc. When the cavitation is of a limited nature, optimization of the geometry with respect to the inception of cavitation can lead to a significant reduction of the extent of the cavitation.
