Thts why people decouple energy eqn, If you want to solve for temp. Include, Energy Eqn and make vapor phase compressible. You will get what you want CFDtoy !

In reality, the temperature & pressure rise is more in vapour phase while collapsing stage of cavitation bubbles. Please share with me, If you have any other ideas. Pranav

There was a paper of cfd simulation including thermal effects at the CAV2003 conference (just write cav2003 in google - you´ll find a link to the papers there). But there they used a different approach of modelling - the barotropic cavitation model. You´ll probably also not get far with vof and bubble dynamics (reyleigh plesset equation) because you´d need a very dense mesh for that - cell size 1/10 of the bubble size...that´s approximatelly 10^-5m (or even less in the beginning and end stage of bubble evolution). I hope I helped a bit... If you have any questions about cavitation modeling i am heppy to help, just write me an email - i did a lot of work in this area (but none considering thermal effects.
