Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to provide a mixture model with modified mass transfer expression for calculating cavitating (two-phase) flow.
Design/methodology/approach - The mass transfer relations are derived based on the mechanics of evaporation and condensation, in which the mass and momentum transfer count for factors such as non-dissolved gas, turbulence, surface tension, phase-change rate, etc.
Findings - As shown by two calculation examples, the modified model can predict the cavitating flow with high accuracy, agreeing well with experimental results.
Originality/value - The methods described are of value in improving stability in numerical calculations.
