This paper presents the calculation method of tip cavitation with wake alignment. Tip cavitation consists of tip vortex cavitation and tip super cavitation which means the undeveloped and local super cavitation around blade tip. The feature of this study is that the method applies the wake alignment model in order to express the realistic phenomena of tip cavitation and predict the pressure fluctuation more accurately. In the present method, the wake sheet is deformed according to the induced velocity vector on the vortex lines. The singularity of the potential vortex can be removed by using the Rankine Vortex model. This paper shows the calculated results regarding cavitation pattern, pressure fluctuation etc. comparing with published experimental data and calculated results without wake alignment.
