Abstract

In order to estimate the cavitation erosion rate, the time taken for cavitation bubbles to develop and the cavitation erosion intensity were investigated. The cavitation intensity was found to be proportional to the 7th power of the time taken for bubbles to develop. This is a similar dependency to the effect of scaling on cavitation erosion, which shows how the cavitation erosion rate increases with cavitating length.
