Cavitation produced by short pulses of ultrasound

Abstract:

Experimentally determined transient cavitation thresholds in water have, in the past, exceeded theoretical predications by a factor of two or more. This discrepancy is attributed to the a priori assumption that cavitation evolves from free-bubble nuclei, a condition which is difficult to recreate experimentally. An experiment is described in which thresholds are measured at two different frequencies (1.0 and 2.25 MHz) in clean water seeded with stabilized microbubbles (Albunex®). A modified f...
