Recently a new cavitation model has been proposed in which bubble formation in aqueous media is initiated by spherical gas nuclei stabilized by surface‐active membranes of varying gas permeability. By tracking the changes in nuclear radius that are caused by increases or decreases in ambient pressure, the varying‐permeability model has provided precise quantitative descriptions of several bubble counting experiments carried out with supersaturated gelatin. The model has also been used to… 
A physiological model of gas pockets in crevices and their behavior under compression
Simulation of dynamic bubble spectra in tissues
A model that uses the gas exchange equations combined with bubble dissolution physics and population balance equations to produce a new mathematical framework for DCS modeling, the population balance model for decompression sickness (PBMDS), which simulates the number of bubbles with their corresponding size distributions in a compartmental tissue array.
A model for influence of exercise on formation and growth of tissue bubbles during altitude decompression.
Results suggest that exercise-induced elevation of O(2) consumption at altitude leads to bubble persistence in tissues, and at the same time, exercise-enhanced perfusion leads to an overall suppression of bubble growth.
On the use of a bubble formation model to calculate diving tables.
Previous decompression tables for humans were based upon unsupported assumptions because the underlying processes by which dissolved gas is liberated from blood and tissue were poorly understood.
On the use of a bubble formation model to calculate diving tables.
Conventional decompressions, altitude bends, no-stop thresholds, and saturation dives are all successfully described by one setting of four global nucleation parameters, which replace the U.S. Navy's matrices of M-values.

Cavitation inception following shock wave passage
Cavitation bubble nucleation following the passage of an extracorporeal shock wave lithotripter pulse is investigated experimentally and numerically. In the experiments two configurations are
