The author of paper [1] would like to thank Professor Green for the relevant discussion. He highlights some oversights in the state of the art and comparison to previous work, first on face seal analysis and second on cavitation modeling. As the paper deals with the definition of a general fluid rheology model for hydrodynamic lubrication with gases and liquids, only the cavitation is addressed in this closure.

In the state of the art, the author tried to identify the main families of models among the large number of papers dealing with cavitation (see the review of Braun and Hannon [2]). One of the main cavitation model is the one proposed by Jacobsson, Floberg, and Olson which has been numerically implemented by Elrod [3]. As indicated by Professor Green, Vijayaraghavan and Keith also presented a significant contribution in cavitation...
