Characterization of Pressure Waves in Liquids Using an Interferometric Method
Paper describes experimental studies on shock waves associated with optical cavitation phenomena in liquids. Direct radial pressure profiles of the transients are obtained using an optical method. Results’on the initial step of the phenomenon and on the collapse of the cavity are given.
