Abstract

The fundamental characteristics of the two-dimensional cavitating flow of liquid nitrogen through a horizontal rectangular nozzle are numerically and experimentally investigated to realize the further development and high performance of new multiphase cryogenic fluid applications. First, the governing equations of the cavitating flow of liquid nitrogen based on the unsteady thermal nonequilibrium two-fluid model are presented, and several flow characteristics are numerically calculated, taken into account the thermodynamic effect of cryogenic conditions. Next, the flow visualization measurement on unsteady cavitating flow of liquid nitrogen through a rectangular nozzle installed in a horizontal duct is carried out to clarify the basic cryogenic two-phase flow structure and fundamental characteristics of the transient growth process of cryogenic cloud cavitation.
