A popular party trick is to fill a glass bottle with water and hit the top of the bottle with an open hand, causing the bottom of the bottle to break open. We investigate the source of the catastrophic cracking through the use of high-speed video and an accelerometer. Upon closer inspection, it is obvious that the acceleration caused by hitting the top of the bottle is followed by the formation of bubbles near the bottom. The nearly instantaneous acceleration creates an area of low pressure on… 
Numerical simulation of cavitation-bubble expansion and collapse inside a bottle subjected to impact on its topside
In this study, we simulate the acceleration-induced cavity bubble expansion and its non-spherical collapse in a drastically varying pressure field caused by mechanical impact, and we qualitatively
Investigation of the collapse of bubbles after the impact of a piston on a liquid free surface
A novel technique based on the impact of a piston on a liquid confined in a vessel is described. Pressure measurements reveal that strong pressure variations (up to 100 atmospheres) with a rich
Cavitation onset caused by acceleration
TLDR
An alternative cavitation number, presented in this paper, defines the universal criteria for the onset of acceleration-induced cavitation, predicting cavitation as a function of acceleration and fluid depth rather than velocity.
Effects of a water hammer and cavitation on jet formation in a test tube
We investigate the motion of a gas–liquid interface in a test tube induced by a large acceleration via impulsive force. We conduct simple experiments in which the tube partially filled with a liquid
Investigation of the plate-impact method as a precursor of physical phenomena and chemical processes
This manuscript aims at characterizing a new device based on a plate impact on a liquid surface to generate cavitation and evaluate its potential to induce chemical reactions. The device is composed
The Dynamics of a Cavitation Pocket and Cavitation Damage
The motion of a liquid column in a vertical tube caused by a moving piston that contacts its lower boundary is considered. The law of the piston’s motion is defined based on experimental data. The
Cavitation upon low-speed solid–liquid impact
TLDR
It is found that an impact velocity as low as ~3 m/s suffices to cavitate the liquid and a new cavitation number is proposed to predict cavitation onset in low-speed solid-liquid impact-scenarios.
A focused liquid jet formed by a water hammer in a test tube
We investigate motion of a gas-liquid interface in a test tube induced by a large acceleration via impulsive force. We conduct simple experiments in which the tube partially filled with a liquid
Experimental evaluation of methodologies for single transient cavitation bubble generation in liquids
Single bubble dynamics are of fundamental importance for understanding the underlying mechanisms in liquid–vapor transition phenomenon known as cavitation. In the past years, numerous studies were
Liquid-Column Cavitation under Motion of Its Lower Boundary
The motion of a liquid column in a vertical pipe caused by a moving piston touching its lower boundary is considered. The law of motion of the piston is set on the basis of experimental data. The
