Numerical Study of Cavitation on Hydrofoils

Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on CFD technology, flow around a 2-dimentional hydrofoil of highly skewed propeller and NACA series hydrofoils are simulated using 2D incompressible Navier-Stokes equation with Realizable k- turbulence model. In the numerical simulation, the vapor volume fraction is calculated for different cavitation numbers and angles of attack by adding the mixture model. The hydrofoil’s performance and the relationship with hydrofoil parameter are qualitatively analyzed. Special focus is given to the influence of the cavitation numbers and angle of attack on cavitation characteristics.
