AbstractTwelve wing/body intersections were used to model typical blade/hub intersections on a propeller. The fillets tested covered a broad range of geometry and permitted direct comparison of the effect of fillet geometry on cavitation performance. The results allow a propeller designer to qualitatively discrimitate between fillets for improved root fillet cavitation performance. The consequences of this for propeller designs are briefly reviewed.
