Cavitation sonophysics

Abstract:

When a sound wave interacts with a bubble or a collection of bubbles present in a fluid, there is a conversion of acoustical to mechanical energy through a process known as acoustic cavitation. The resulting physical effects include cavitation microstreaming, collapse microjets, shock waves, elevated pressures and temperatures, and excess acoustic attenuation. It is possible to influence, and in some cases control, these processes through careful manipulation ...
