The author of paper [1] would like to thank Professors Boedo and Booker for the relevant discussion. Their main concern is about the lack of reference pertaining to cavitation modeling in the state of the art. Indeed, the paper of Kumar and Booker [2] and the associated references are not cited. The author would like to apologize for this oversight. Since the topic of paper [1] is liquid and gas lubrication, including cavitation, it was not possible to be exhaustive on all these topics.

The cavitation model of Kumar and Booker [2] was designed for finite element simulations and considered cavitation through an approach similar to the Jakobsson–Floberg–Olsson method. The originality was the simulation of transient problems. For that, the authors proposed to define three different states for the nodes of the finite element mesh. The advantage...
