    Abstract

    A compressible homogeneous flow model is applied for the solution of two-phase flow around marine propellers. A novel method to solve phase volume fractions is proposed. The numerical method is applied for a model-size marine propeller in cavitating conditions, and the computed results are validated against experimental data in terms of global performance characteristics, local flow phenomena and cavitation prediction.
