The well-known ship model basins MARIN of The Netherlands and HSVA of Germany have joint forces to investigate the problem of the occasional over-prediction of the propeller-induced hull pressure pulses when performing cavitation tests with complete ship models, i.e., with model propellers operating in a ship model wake field.
