This paper presents a numerical study of the influence of the reduced frequency on the 2-D partial sheet cavitation behaviourfor a foil operating in a gust. The cases of continuous and intermittent cavitation are investigated. The analysis is based on the Boundary Element Method (BEM). Results are presented for a NACA16-006 foil moving through transverse gusts at varying reduced frequencies.
