Axisymmetric cavitation flow around a body in a tube

  • é. L. Amromin
  • A. N. Ivanov


The problem of the axisymmetric flow around a body in a circular tube with arbitrary shape of the meridian section is reduced to the numerical solution of a system of two integral equations to determine the shape of the cavern and the intensity of the vortex rings arranged on the solid boundaries and the cavern boundary. Results of computations of the cavitation flow around a sphere, ellipsoid of revolution, and cone in a cylindrical tube, and also for a cone in converging and expanding tubes and in a hydrodynamic tunnel with the actual shape of the converging and working sections, are presented.
