This paper has studied the partial cavitation of 2-D hydrofoil based on the theory of viscous flow. The numerical calculation sets forth from the complete N-S equation and adopts the two-equation turbulence model closed Reynolds equation. As the basic control equation, the cavitating flow adopts the Rayleigh plesset model and calculates the zero angle of attack. At the same time, it calculates the influences of different ship speeds on the hydrofoil partial cavitating flow and analyzes the flow field of the hydrofoil. In addition, it makes comparisons on the calculation results and the published test conclusions. The results have shown that the calculation method in this paper has relatively good calculation precise degree.
