Abstract

This paper aims to compare the results of two commonly used methods for the simulation of cavitating flows; one is the two phase mass transfer approach and the other is a homogenous equilibrium model. Both methodologies are compared in a shock tube and a throttle flow, which resembles the constrictions in Diesel injector passages. The mass transfer rate in the two phase model plays the fundamental role in affecting how close to equilibrium the model is; by increasing the mass transfer the two phase model comes close to the homogenous equilibrium model.
