A 3-D panel method has been extended to model the flow around fully submerged supercavitating propellers and surface-piercing propellers. Overviews of the formulation and solution methodology is presented. Comparisons of the numerical predictions with measurements from experiments are given. Discussion of the numerical results, and initial work on modeling of impact flows are provided.
