Abstract

In many previous mathematical models of steam bubble collapse a perfect gas in the bubble was taken into consideration. It might lead to substantial mistakes, for example, wrong calculation of heat capacity Cy of vapour. A new mathematical model of steam bubble collapse in subcooled liquid has been proposed. It uses the equation of state for a real gas and the Pitzer- Abbott correlation for calculating the second virial coefficient B It takes also into account the ratio of vapour to liquid and a change in temperature of liquid during the process. The results of our own experimental and calculated data have been compared with those obtained by other auth
