Abstract : The manual describes the computer program which can be used to predict loads on finite aspect ratio, general planform, cavitating hydrofoils with both steady and oscillatory foil motion. The details of the theoretical development for predicting unsteady loads on cavitating hydrofoils are covered in a final report. References to the equations in the final report are made, and the manual should be used in conjunction with the final report.
