How Cavitation at the surface of turbine blade takes place

Hi All,

Here is my latest video on “How cavitation at the surface of turbine blade takes place.”

This topic belongs to Fluid Mechanics branch of Engineering.

In this video, it has been explained that what does Cavitation mean and how does it take place at the surface of moving parts. The example of Cavitation at the turbine blades has been taken to explain the concept off the process.

In the process, small bubbles are formed in a liquid due to action of forces upon it.  It usually happens when there is sudden drop in pressure in the flow of liquid due to which small cavities are formed. When the bubbles are put to high pressure, they explode thereby generating waves of very high intensity.

Examples of Cavitation are pumps, propellers, turbines etc.

The process damages the structure of parts and hence it is an undesirable process.

  1. Hey, you used to write excellent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring… I miss your super writings. Past few posts are just a little out of track! come on!

  2. I am very happy to read this. This is the kind of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that is at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this greatest doc.
