DKY2Y is on a distinguished road
I have just completed my impeller design using Vista CPD and created the cavitation simulation on Ansys CFX. However, I am having some difficulty with two important things. What is the method required to show the effect of cavitation on vibration using Ansys? I would like to show the vibration effects caused by the vapour bubbles on the impeller. Furthermore, is there a way to show the Vibration Spectrum of the impeller which shows the peaks caused by the cavitation. I heard that this involves determining the flow induced vibrations on Ansys.

The attached pictures shows both the steps which I have undertaken and the cavitation effects on a small section of the impeller. The red section on the impeller shows the areas where the cavitation effect are very prominent.
