Different from marine propeller designs, which undergo standard stock and design propeller test programmes with detailed assessments of the final design (for the overall propulsive efficiency, the cavitation performance and the pressure fluctuations, etc.), waterjet systems of a final design are seldom tested for their system characteristics, the intake loss and the cavitation performance.
