TU Delft OpenCourseWare just published a new Master course: Cavitation on Ship Propellers

TU Delft OpenCourseWare just published a new Master course called "Cavitation on Ship Propellers" belonging to the Master Track "Marine Technoloy"

Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course is divided into five main groups: physics, types and effects of cavitation as well as calculations and test facilities and techniques. Some of these topics are illustrated with the use of videos
