Abstract

A Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes computational model of homogeneous multiphase flow is presented. Cavitation driven thrust and torque breakdown over a wide range of advance ratios is modeled for an open propeller. Computational results are presented as a form of validation against water tunnel measured thrust and torque breakdown for the propeller. Successful validation of the computational model is achieved. Additional observations are made with regards to cavity size and shape as well as cavitation breakdown behavior.
