Pulsations of Cavitation Voids

Part of the Ultrasonic Technology book series (ULTE)


All effects observed in connection with ultrasonic cavitation, such as cavitation erosion, sonoluminescence, cavitation noise, and the initiation of chemical reactions, are related to the existence and characteristic behavior of cavitation voids in an intense ultrasonic wave field. This makes the investigation of the motion of cavitation bubbles or voids one of the central problem areas of ultrasonic cavitation research.
