A summary is given of two-dimensional, steady-state, nonlinear theory for two finite-cavity models and their solutions. Two applications are described. First, the influence of the foil’s depth of submersion below a free surface on cavity length and foil performance is described. Second, the effect of a blunt nose on a circular-arc hydrofoil is examined.
