Fission of Collapsing Cavitation Bubbles

  title={Fission of Collapsing Cavitation Bubbles},
  author={Christopher E. Brennen},
High-speed observations (for example, Lauterborn and Bolle 1975, Tomita and Shima 1990, Frost and Sturtevant 1986) clearly show that though a collapsing cavitation bubble approaches its minimum size as a coherent single volume, it usually reappears in the first rebounding frame as a cloud of much smaller bubbles or as a highly distorted single volume (see, for example, figure 2). This paper explores two mechanisms that may be responsible for that bubble fission process, one invoking a Rayleigh… CONTINUE READING
