The present report describes about the effects of the amount of the alternate cutting back of the leading edges on the steady cavitation, its stability and the onset region of rotating cavitation. It was found that, by increasing the amount of cutting back, we can increase the range of cavitation number with stable cavitation and diminish the onset region of rotating cavitation.
