Subjectcavitation; propeller; root fillet; model tests
AbstractCavitation properties of propeller blade root fillet geometries are examined through model tests. Results for a planar hub series and a spherical hub series, with various fillet radii and shapes, are presented. Cavitation inception and desinence for several angles of attack are recorded.
