Supercavitation can be generated at relatively lower speeds by injecting compressed air behind the cavitator. As a result, an artificially created supercavity is deformed and its tail tends to rise due to gravitational effects. However, practical prediction of the artificial supercavity currently depends on empirical results. In this study, a mathematical model for the artificial supercavity under the gravity effect is proposed. Based on a boundary element method, geometric characteristics of the supercavity at different flow conditions are examined. The results were compared with an existing empirical formula and also experimental observations carried out at a cavitation tunnel of the Chungnam National University.
Key Words: Cavitator, Artificial Supercavitation, Gravity Effect
