A numerical tool for the simulation of cavitating flows is presented in this paper. The numerical model is based on the 2D Euler/Navier-Stokes equations with a barotropic state law, which are solved in body fitted coordinates using a robust spatial and temporal differencing scheme. The model has been validated comparing numerical and experimental results on… CONTINUE READING
