The performance of a vortex generator intended for a marine
application is investigated experimentally in a cavitation tunnel.
Several tests were made as a preliminary study to gain basic
knowledge of an initial design concept. Investigations included
flow visualisation of local flow and wake trajectory, cavitation
inception and occurrence, and measurement of boundary layer
profiles both upstream and downstream of the vortex generator.
Boundary layers were measured in the non-cavitating condition
only. Two upstream boundary layer profiles were tested and
were found to have little influence on cavitation inception for a
range of incidence.
