can CFX solve the problem of the cavitation in cryogenic liquids?
 
hello everyone, the tutorial 19 only shows the cavitation around a hydrofoil in the room temperture. I want to know if the cavitation in cryogenic liquids can be solved by using CFX.
Has anyone solved the cryogenic cavitation problem using CFX.
Thank you very much!

Nothing involving cavitation is simple. Cryogenic cavitation sounds even trickier.

I have done cavitation in hydraulic oil with power steering valves but never crygenic stuff.

But yes, it should be solveable, just expect to do lots of validation and checking before it works properly and accurately.

Thank you very much. Cryogenic cavitation is really difficult. My work is cavitation in the turbine. Now I think I should use an easier model compared with other people's work to validate the model in the CFX first , then doing my project. What do you think?
