It is shown that the scattering of laser radiation off cavitation ruptures in fluids is similar to scattering by gas particles. When the characteristic dimensions of microscopic voids and bubbles are considerably smaller than the laser wavelength, the scattered light is in the Rayleigh regime, which allows for the detection of early stage cavitation. Simple estimates of the scattered radiation intensity and the dynamics of its changes in connection with the generation of cavitation in the test…

Initial stage of cavitation in liquids and its observation by Rayleigh scattering

A theory is developed for the initial stage of cavitation in the framework of Zel’dovich–Fisher theory of nucleation in the field of negative pressure, while taking into account the surface tension

Sub-barrier cavitation regime in liquid helium

In this paper, on the basis of the model Schr\"odinger equation, we consider the tunneling mechanism of cavitation in liquid helium and obtain threshold values of negative pressure as a function of

Study of the dynamics of a sheet cavitation

A compressible, two-phase, one-fluid solver has been developed to investigate the behaviour of cavitation models. The model is based on a transport equation for the volume fraction of gas. Numerical

Investigation of the initial phases of nanosecond discharges in liquid water

In this work, we examine initial phases of micro-discharges produced in deionised water by high-voltage (HV) pulses of nanosecond duration. We apply opto-electrical diagnostics with extremely high

Electrostrictive Cavitation in Water Induced by a SnO2 Nanoparticle

Cavitation phenomenon in dielectric fluids has been a recent topic of interest in theory and experiment and is studied using molecular dynamics simulations with both SPC/E water and the hydrogen bonding polarizable model.

Cavitation in dielectric fluid in inhomogeneous pulsed electric field

This paper proposes a method for studying the early stages of the cavitation development in arbitrary, non-stationary conditions. This method is based on the comparison of the results of calculations

Pre-breakdown cavitation nanopores in the dielectric fluid in the inhomogeneous, pulsed electric fields

This paper discusses the nanopores emerging and developing in a liquid dielectric under the action of the ponderomotive electrostrictive forces in a nonuniform electric field. It is shown that the

If the fronts of the voltage rise at a sharp, needlelike electrode are rather steep, the region of negative pressure arises, which can reach values at which the fluid loses its continuity with the formation of cavitation ruptures.

Cavitation pressure in water.

This work investigates the limiting mechanical tension (negative pressure) that liquid water can sustain before cavitation occurs, and describes the method which consists in focusing a high amplitude sound wave in the bulk liquid, away from any walls, to obtain highly reproducible results.

Pre-breakdown processes in a dielectric fluid in inhomogeneous pulsed electric fields

We consider the development of pre-breakdown cavitation nanopores appearing in the dielectric fluid under the influence of the electrostrictive stresses in the inhomogeneous pulsed electric field. It

Homogeneous nucleation in water in microfluidic channels.

It has been an experimental challenge to test the rupture of liquids with homogeneous nucleation of vapor bubbles. Many prior studies suffered from the ubiquitous presence of impurities in liquids or

Negative Pressures and Cavitation in Liquid Helium

Cavitation—the formation of bubbles—is a familiar phenomenon. Whenever a liquid is agitated violently, there is a possibility that cavitation will occur (see, for example, figure 1). In the case of

Laser Rayleigh scattering

Rayleigh scattering is a powerful diagnostic tool for the study of gases and is particularly useful for aiding in the understanding of complex flow fields and combustion phenomena. Although the

The effect of impurities on the density of cavitation centers in water under the conditions of pulsed tension with amplitude of up to −6.0 MPa has been studied. It is established that the density of
