Hello svenki7,

I see that this post is quite old, but I am wondering if you had any answer regarding your questions?
I think that the cavitation and flashing formation processes are the same ( vapor generation due to pressure drop), but the cavitation bubbles eventually collapses and come back to the liquid phase, while flashing is a complete phase change from liquid to gas.

did you try to apply the cavitation model to your flashing problem? did you get any results?

hi Lionel

yes it is possible to use Zwart Gurber cavitation model to simulate flashing using ANSYS FLUENT
