The authors have developed 2D steady and unsteady models for partial sheet cavitation analysis based on the Boundary Element Method (BEM). Using these models, this paper presents an analysis of the cavitating flow on a foil in a vertical gust similar to a ship wake peak and shows the influence of the reduced frequency on the cavitation characteristics.
