Simulation of cavitation in jet pumps

Mariusz Domagała


This paper presents simulation of cavitation phenomena at jet pumps with use of CFD methods. There was also presented theoretical consideration of cavitation formation and models applied at the CFD codes. On example of liquid-jet liquid pump, which working medium is water was presented simulation of cavitation process which was conducted in Ansys CFX code. This paper also includes some selected results of simulation for fluid flow at the jet pump with consideration of cavitation process.
