Time Resolved Measurements of Shock Induced Cavitation Bubbles in Various Liquids: A Novel Method of Optical Measurement
Cavitation is a major source of erosion for instance of ship propellers, pumps and water turbines. In such systems low pressure regions (pockets) exist where the water pressure suddenly becomes very low, almost a vacuum. These growing pockets, i.e. the “cavitation bubbles” propagate to high pressure regions, where they collapse immediately.
