Numerical simulation of cavitation flows based on their hydrodynamic similarity

  title={Numerical simulation of cavitation flows based on their hydrodynamic similarity},
  author={S. Martynov and Douglas J. Mason and Morgan Heikal},
Hydrodynamic similarity of cavitation flows in nozzles of different scales has been observed experimentally. In this paper a model of cavitation has been developed, taking into account the bubbly nature of cavitation and assuming local homogeneity of the vapour–liquid flow. The model of cavitation is built from correlations for evaporation and condensation, based on bubble dynamics theory, and an equation for the number density of cavitation bubbles, derived by assuming hydrodynamic similarity… CONTINUE READING
