The present paper deals with the modelling of steady 2D partial cavitation on hydrofoils using a Boundary Element Method (BEM). An extensive analysis is carried out for several models, a non-linear model with the boundary conditions applied on the true cavity surface and a partially non-linear model with the boundary conditions applied on the foil surface beneath the cavity.
