Abstract : A numerical method for two-dimensional cavitating flow is developed for the flat plate. The linearized boundary value problem is restated as a set of coupled integral equations. The integral equations are approximated numerically. The numerical approximation is executed by a Fortran 4 computer program. The computed results are compared to the analytic solution. This method should provide insight into developing a method for three-dimensional cavitating flows and is readily extendable to cambered profiles.
