Large eddy simulation of partial cavitation around a 2D plane-convex hydrofoil
Rights accessOpen Access
Investigations of attached partial cavitation are important because to prevent damages in hydrulic machinery and to reduce the costs. As expected computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods have been developed for more than 40 years to understand this phenomenon and to improve the machinery designs, as pumps and hydraulic turbines. However, cavitation appears at high Reynolds numbers, so that, the traditional turbulence models Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS)
