Cavitation Number

The Cavitation number (Ca) is a dimensionless number used in flow calculations analysis.

The number reflects the relationship between the difference of a local pressure from the vapour pressure and the kinetic energy per volume.

Cavitation number is used to characterize the potential of the flow to cavitate.

This application will also allows you to back calculate all the calculation variables in the cavitation number equation;
– The local Pressure
– Fluid vapour Pressure
– Fluid velocity

Input can be defined in different units,
For Pressure the available input units are: Pa, kPa, bar, psi, lb/ft2
For Velocity the available input units are: m/s, ft/s
For Density the available input units are: kg/m3, lb/ft3
