Cavitation and Compressible Liquid
I am trying to simulate a pressure pulse in an tube (L=250mm, D=2.5mm) filled with liquid. There is a dead end (wall) on one side of the tube, the other is an opening where a step function for Pressure is applied (100 to 75 bar). The Liquid is defined with pressure dependant density. Vapor is constant property gas. The Pressure is at least 2 orders of magnitude above the saturation pressure everywhere, so no cavitation is expected.
1st Simulation Single Phase with Liquid only
2nd Simulation: Mass transfer Off, both Fluids present
3rd Simulation Mass transfer On, (Cavitation Model)
Multiphase Options: Homogenious
Heat Transfer: Homogenious, Isothermal
Fluid Details: Continuous (both)
Interphase Transfer: None
All three Simulations give different Pressure Plots for the Dead End location. During the first time steps the max Vapor Volume Fraction rises from its Initial Value of 1e-15 (Solver Limit) to a Value of Order 1E-5 in the second and 5E-5 in the third simulation.
How to conserve the behaviour of the pure liquid as long as there is no cavitation without swiching from a single to a multiphase simulation ?
