Collapse of vapor bubbles in a liquid

The effect of nonequilibrium phase transitions on the vibrations of a vapor bubble in a liquid caused by a suddenly applied pressure drop is considered. This problem is of interest in the study of mixed liquid and vapor flows with a discrete vapor phase. Results are presented of a numerical solution of this problem in the form of dimensionless radius-time curves for various values of the parameter which characterizes the kinetics of the phase transitions. The case of equilibrium phase transitions has been considered in [1, 2]. The thermal and dynamic interactions of a gaseous bubble with the surrounding fluid are the subject of [3, 4].
