Hydrodynamic Mechanisms in Cavitation Erosion
Paper in proceedings, 2012

A refined description of the hydrodynamic mechanisms involved in determining the erosiveness of a collapsing cavity is presented. It highlights the impact of the possible presence of a partially glassy sheet and that collapse symmetry/asymmetry needs to be considered when analyzing the flow. Also, the impact of these processes on experimental or nume- rical procedures to assess cavitation erosion is discussed.
