While CFD has been used to predict machine performance, the demand for better efficiency requires engineers to predict and understand even more detailed phenomena such as when and how cavitation occurs.Since cavitation can impair performance, cause physical damage, and create noise, design engineers must identify the risks and develop solutions to avoid them prior to production.Physically simulating cavitation bubbles in the size of few microns is not easy. In addition, simulating the highly complex transient flows would be extremely challenging.Considering these issues, one simulation approach is to model the cavitation phenomenon using caviation models.Cavitation models have progressed substantially over the last several years assisted by hardware and software advancements. This has enabled design engineers to use the analytical results to develop design solutions.Essentially, the cavitation function in SC/Tetra is the combination of the following models; a homogeneous model of two phase gas-liquid media. The model assumes that the equation of state for the liquid phase is analogous to that of the vapor phase.
