ASPECTS OF CAVITATION NOISE

Aspects of cavitation noise derived from simple model conceptions are described. Due to statistical considerations, the power spectrum of cavitation noise appears to be mainly defined by the spectral energy density of single cavitation noise events, the number per time of cavitation events and, possibly, correlating influences on the succession of cavitation events. The spectral energy density of cavitation noise events is discussed on the basis of bubble dynamics discerning monopole type and shock wave cavitation noise. The number per time of cavitation events is reflected on with respect to cavitation nuclei. Also some aspects of cavitation noise scaling are shown. The aspects described are still incomplete and their scope is limited, but they may help clarify the complex problems of cavitation noise.
