The interaction of a shock wave with a bubble features in many engineering and emerging technological applications, and has been used widely to test new numerical methods for compressible interfacial flows. Recently, density-based algorithms with pressure-correction methods as well as fully-coupled pressure-based algorithms have been established as promising alternatives to classical density-based algorithms based on Riemann solvers. The current paper investigates the predictive accuracy of…

Modeling Acoustic Cavitation Using a Pressure-Based Algorithm for Polytropic Fluids
A fully coupled pressure-based algorithm and finite-volume framework for the simulation of the acoustic cavitation of bubbles in polytropic gas-liquid systems is proposed. The algorithm is based on a
