The added mass effects on a NACA0009 hydrofoil under cavitation conditions determined in a cavitation tunnel have been numerically simulated using finite element method (FEM). Based on the validated model, the effects of averaged properties of the cavity considered as a two-phase mixture have been evaluated. The results indicate that the void ratio of the cavity plays an increasing role on the frequency reduction ratio and on the mode shape as the mode number increases. Moreover, the sound speed shows a more important role than the average cavity density
