In the present work, a cavitation model based on a new truncated form of the full Rayleigh-Plesset (R-P) equation for the source terms controlling vapor generation and destruction has been developed and implemented in the ANSYS FLUENT platform. Coupled with a Filter-based density corrected model (FBDCM), the cavitating flow over a 2-D Clark-Y hydrofoil is investigated numerically with particular emphasis on understanding the effect of cavitation structures and the shedding dynamics on the… CONTINUE READING
