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 vapor pressure and the kinetic energy per volume, Cavitation number is used to characterize the potential of the flow to cavitate. The equation looks similar to Euler number but with small differences.
This application allows you to calculate the Cavitation Number, but not limited to this, the app also allows you to back calculate all the calculation variables in the cavitation number equation;
- The local Pressure
- Fluid vapor 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
The application is defaulted to calculate the Cavitation number so the output unit is dimensionless. but if the calculation mode changes to any of the variables above the output can be calculated in any of the units listed below:
For Pressure output the units can be any of: Pa, kPa, bar, psi, lb/ft2
For Velocity output the units can be any of: m/s, ft/s
This version of the application contains NO ADVERTS and DOESN'T need internet connection to operate.
