Abstract : The physical flow pattern of various surface-piercing struts and foils is analyzed on the basis of available experimental material. Statistical, but generalized functions are derived for height of and resistance due to spray. The mechanism of ventilation is described, critical Froude numbers with respect to ventilation are found, and a basic equation for the resistance due to ventilation is presented. The interaction between lift and ventilation is evaluated from the material on tested surface-piercing hydrofoils.(See also AD-11 839)
