Default supercavitation in CFX
Posts: n/a
I was wondering if anyone has tried supercavitation in CFX. I saw from the forums that Fluent can do this, but where I work we only have a CFX license. Any tips, tricks, successes or failures are appreciated.

If you mean modelling supercavitating foils then CFX should be able to do it. I have not tried it but all the necessary physics is in there. It will probably need some validation work to get the cavitation model to be accurate.

Yes. You might have to type in a custom mass transfer model though. Not sure if Rayleigh-Plesset is applicable or not to this situation.

Fluent would also need UDF for this, so not much better off.
