Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to investigate the theoretical effect of distortions on subcavitating foil sections in regard to cavitation inception velocities. The study is intended to give some prediction as to type and size of distortions that may be tolerated in foil construction. It is natural to expect errors in foil shape to occur as a result of inaccurate construction or damage. It is therefore the intention of this paper to provide estimates of admissible deviations from the intended foil geometry in order that cavitation may be prevented or at least anticipated. (Author)
