In this paper simulation of steady super cavitation phenomenon اhas been considered by using partial non-linear model of Boundary Element Method(BEM).The grid mesh used is fixed and the strength of dipole and source are constant on each element. With the assumption of a partial non-linear model the cavity condition is applied on the body with the assumption that cavity height is low. Thus there is not any calculation on the cavity surface, but it is restricted to only the panels on the body surface. Cavitation number is known at first and the cavity length is determined in every iteration. When the lengths obtained in two successive iterations are very close to each other it assumed to be the answer. Based on this method two Kutta conditions including Morino condition and Iterative Pressure Kutta Condition(IPKC) are studied to satisfy the wake surface condition. The application is a wing with NACA16006 section. Iterative pressure Kutta condition compared to Morino condition needs higher computational costs, but on the other hand leads to more accurate results. It has been shown that the simulation of the flow with super cavitation over wing leads to a pressure difference at the trailing edge of each strip if we use Morino’s Kutta condition. While if Iterative Pressure Kutta Condition is usedthe results are satisfactory. Comparing the results show that this method leads to very accurate predictions for the behavior of flows with cavitation, while significantly lower computational cost is required if we use the simple cavity closure condition.
