Jheel is on a distinguished road
Im unable to know how the solver takes up the inital conditions and solves the equations for cavitating flow.

According to my understanding, the solver first solves the k-e model (at vapour volume fraction f=1) to derive at values of pressure inside each control volume and implements cavitation model whenever pressure is lesser than vapour pressure.

But im unable to understand the further approach of solver to model it using transport equations and rayleigh plesset model.
Which are the unknows in equations and how their values are derived.
