The present investigation demonstrates the strong interaction of cavitating nozzle flow with the outside jet formation. Due to the strong sensitivity of cavitation on the imposed boundary conditions, simulations with restriction on the internal problem are qualitatively and quantitatively incorrect, so that phenomena like hydraulic flip and supercavitation cannot be revealed. Our results indicate the potential of cavitation for enhancement of atomization and spray quality.
