This paper addresses the propeller singing mitigation strategy of implementing an anti-singing edge so that the vortex shedding mechanism causing the excitation at the trailing edge of the propeller blade can be reduced. A Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes model with a k-ε turbulence formulation in 2D-flow was used to investigate the problem numerically. Simulations on a NACA 0009 hydrofoil with varying inflow velocity, angle of attack, and bevel angle were done. The content in this paper is a summary of the work done by the author during his MSc Individual Project at University College London (Johannessen, MSc thesis, 2020).
