If you need to model the actual cavities (because they change the flow path around the cavitating object), then use the full cavitation model, and specify PCAV = cavitation pressure and CAVRT = characteristic cavity formation time = 0.001 second. The model will run very slowly. If you just want to know where cavitation will occur, either use the 'Cavitation Potential' model, or just look at pressure output around your objects of interest.

It is the sum of that difference for all time steps where the local pressure is less than the cavitation pressure. Because the units are pressure x time (dt), they are the same as dynamic viscosity.
