One of the most useful theories for the design of hydrofoils for use in cavitating flow has been that of L. C. Woods. He solved the linearized problem for a two-dimensional hydrofoil in Helmholtz flow, at zero angle of attack, and tabulated the results. His theory is here extended to include nonzero cavitation number and nonzero angle of attack. The results are tabulated and some are compared with the original Woods theory.
