In this paper, we have improved a cavitation model implemented in “Front Flow/Blue (FFB)”, which is a solver of turbulent flows using the large-eddy simulation (LES) technique with high accuracy. To improve the cavitation model, we have carried out a survey of conventional cavitation models and performed a trade-off between the models based on some evaluation points such as accuracy, achievement, future potential, and computational cost. In the new cavitation model, the surface area of cavitation bubbles in each cell is also solved in addition to the volume fraction of the bubbles. Although the validation is in progress, the new cavitation model is expected to be useful to reproduce a detailed cavitation structure.
