An accurate theory which included the following two methods was developed concerning the flow through an arbitrary form supercavitating hydrofoil: (i) A method by which to obtain the hydrofoil form for a given pressure distribution; (ii) a method by which to estimate hydrofoil characteristics. The accuracy of the previously reported linearized solution was checked on, and then a very simple effective correcting method for the linearized solution was found out.
