Abstract

A hybrid Lagrangian-Eulerian cavitation model based on the Schnerr-Sauer mass-transfer formulation is developed and then applied to study the flow around the Delft Twist 11 hydrofoil. The model uses volume-of-fluid approach to resolve large cavities and uses an interface reconstruction algorithm to identify vapour structures smaller than a grid-related threshold. These are then transferred to a Lagrangian framework and convected as particles acting as point noise sources. The underlying volume-of-fluid (VOF) model is shown to be in qualitatively good agreement with the experiment although it is found to under-predict the extent of cavitation. The combined model shows a substantial improvement in the prediction of near-field pressure fluctuations by accounting for the broadband contribution of bubbles smaller than the Eulerian grid size. In the pressure fluctuation spectra this is seen as a plateau extending to over a kilohertz beyond the low-frequency harmonics associated with the shedding frequency.
