The present contribution follows the previous numerical optimisation of homogeneous cavitation transport model parameters (9) for the numerical prediction of attached sheet cavitation around a hydrofoil.
Notwithstanding the discrepancies observed in velocity profile distributions at cavitation intensive operating regimes, for the case of steady simulation of attached sheet cavitation, homogenous cavitation models results based on the additional transport equation are comparable.
The results show that optimised cavitation transport models can be used for qualitative analyses of the steady sheet cavitation in the Venturi nozzle.
