This paper describes a new numerical method for simulating a cavitating flow using unstructured hybrid meshes. This new method takes into account the compression of liquid phase, using two-fluid model. Head form cavitation data are compared with the numerical data. Our numerical method is useful for simulating a cavitating flow.
