Abstract : Frequency functions and unsteady lift and moment coefficients for a hydrofoil oscillating sinusoidally in pitch and heave have been computed using a theory developed by L.C. Woods for an airfoil fitted with a spoiler. A cavity of infinite length is assumed to spring from an arbitrary point on the upper surface of the hydrofoil and extended aft to the trailing edge. Computed frequency coefficients and loading coefficients are tabulated for six locations of the separation point over a range of reduced frequencies from 0.01 to 20.0. (Author)
