1 J. A. Szantyr Lecture No. 22: Cavitation Physical basics Hydrodynamic consequences

2 1. Definition of cavitation 2. Cavitation inception 3. Forms of cavitation - sheet cavitation - bubble cavitation - vortex cavitation Plan of the lecture - transient forms of cavitation 4. Consequences of cavitation 5. Conclusion - reduction of efficiency of the fluid flow machinery - cavitation erosion - noise and vibration

3 Definition of cavitation Cavitation is the phenomenon of the dynamic growth and decay of vapour-gas bubbles in the liquid, generated by the changes in pressure at (almost) constant temperature. The process of cavitation is controlled by: diffusion/degassing evaporation/condensation inertia of the fluid surface tension adhesion viscosity of the fluid

4 Cavitation may occur in: liquid gases rocket fuel, liquid metals coolants in nuclear reactors, natural liquids working fluids in hydraulic machines (e.g. fuel in a Diesel engine), blood in the flow through an artificial heart valve.

6 The parameter describing similarity of the cavitation phenomena is the cavitation number (or index) σ p pv σ = 1 2 ρu 2 where: p pressure in the given point of flow - critical vapour pressure, about 2000 [Pa] p v U velocity of flow ρ density of liquid The simplified condition of cavitation inception has the form: p p p pv C p = σ = or: p pv ρu ρu 2 2 where: p - pressure far in front of the object p pressure in the considered point on the object

7 Approximate assessment of the cavitation inception and its extent in different operating conditions of a profile Cavitation diagram of a profile

10 Inception of cavitation Inception of cavitation occurs when the micro- bubbles naturally contained in a liquid are destabilised

11 Distribution of micro-bubbles

12 The history of growth and decay of the cavitation bubble Rayleigh-Plesset equation R 2 d R 2 dt dr dt R radius of the bubble dr ρr dt p + 2A R µ g = ρ p v p A surface tension of the liquid

13 History of growth and decay of cavitation bubbles of diferent initial radii

14 Comparison of the calculated and observed cavitation extent

15 Forms of cavitation Sheet cavitation High tension in fluid, acting sufficiently long to destabilize most of the micro-bubbles

16 Computational determination of sheet cavitation on the ship propeller blade, compared with the experimental observation

17 Forms of cavitation Bubble cavitation Low tension in the liquid, destabilising only the largest micro-bubbles, which are few and far between

18 Forms of cavitation Vortex cavitation

19 Mechanism of the vortex cavitation inception

20 Ship propeller ruder configuration

21 The cavitating tip vortex on a ship propeller deformed by the rudder interaction

22 Pressure pulses generated by the cavitating tip vortex with and without rudder interaction With rudder With rudder Without rudder Without rudder Point no A1[kPa] A2[kPa] A1[kPa] A2[kPa]

23 Transient forms of cavitation Cloud cavitation Increase of pressure in the fluid leads to the transient forms of cavitation

24 Consequences of cavitation - reduction in efficiency of the fluid flow machinery - cavitation erosion - noise and vibration

25 Reduction of efficiency K = σ = p p1 v 0 ρ 2 2 v Dependence of the hydrofoil lift coefficient on the cavitation number and angle of attack Dependence of the hydrofoil drag coefficient on the cavitation number and angle of attack

26 Reduction of efficiency σ = p 1 ρ v 2 0 pv 1 v 2 Dependence of the lift coefficient C l on the cavitation number σ for the NACA 4418 profile

27 Influence of cavitation on the ship propeller efficiency

28 Cavitation erosion The process of decline of a cavitation bubble near a solid wall

29 The final stage of decline of the cavitation bubble near the solid wall

30 Consequences of the cavitation erosion 60-meter long damage of the inflow channel of the hydr-electric power station Tarbela Dam in Pakistan people digger

31 Single erosion pits Pit generated by the jet of liquid passing through a bubble located very close to the wall Pit generated by the secondary collapse of the toroidal ring of vortices created when the collapsing bubble is located a little farther from the wall

32 Erosion on the ship propeller blades

33 Noise σ Rɺ R Rɺ 3 + Rɺ µ = 2 ρr ρr F ( t)

34 Spectrum of noise generated by a ship propeller

35 Vibration Comparison of the spectrum of vibration of the turbine inlet pump in Żarnowiec power station during pumping and turbine operation

36 Conclusion All machines and devices in which liquid is the working fluid are susceptible to cavitation. Cavitation results in serious negative consequences, which may adversely affect the operation and may lead to the damage these machines and devices. Limitation or elimination of cavitation and its negative consequences requires special, complicated methods for design of these machines and devices, using modern experimental techniques and the most advanced theoretical and numerical methods.
