First thing to know is that the cavitation model in TASCflow does not permit simulate the real (physical) behavior of sheet cavitation encountered in pumps. THe real phenomenon is much more complicated that simply putting vapor pressure all around.

A good start for you would be the thesis of Hirschi of the EPFL ( There is a lot of other interesting stuff there on the cavitation subject (experimental and numerical) including my thesis ;-).

Best regards,
