Modeling Fluid-Structure Interaction in Cavitation Erosion using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics
Download citation file:
In the present study a meshless Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics cavitation solver is developed. The fluid bubble collapse solver is validated against analytical Rayleigh-Plesset equation and shows good agreement. The solid solver capable of solving elastic-plastic deformation and material damage is developed and is validated against FEM results. A fluid structure interaction solver capable of solving cavitation erosion is presented. A single bubble collapse is demonstrated in the paper.
