 March 23, 2008, 11:24 How to detect the cavitation in water. #1 jinwon park Guest   Posts: n/a I am solving a highly pressured gas-water flow. In some physical situations, water is cavitated. Can anyone advice me how to simulate this physical event? The fluid flow is compressible and inviscid.

Experiments usually provide it as zero. Physically, it implies that water cannot sustain tension. Unlike solids, it is cavitated when subjected to a strong expansion wave. To do, I implemented in the way that when the pressure is lower than zero, the calculated pressure becomes zero instead of any negative pressure. Thanks.

I don't have many references at hand now, just what I've found in Star-CD manual: Schmidt, D.P., Rutland, C.J., and Corradini, M.L. 1997. 'A numerical study of cavitating flow through various nozzle shapes', SAE Technical Paper Series 971597, pp. 117-126. Kubota, A., Kato, H., and Yamaguchi, H. 1992. 'A new modelling of cavitating flows: a numerical study of unsteady cavitation on a hydrofoil section', J. Fluid. Mech., 240, pp. 59-96. The first one is for barotropic model, the second - for bubble two-phase model.
