Various closure conditions of a ventilated cavity enveloping all or part of a high-speed underwater body are introduced, including those involving a propulsion jet. The flow regimes for the latter are described based on Efros-Paryshev theory, which is extended to estimate the efficiency and fundamental limitations of a rocket-type propulsor.
