Abstract
Recently much attention has been paid to studies concerning bubble dynamics in the cavitation phenomena and this topic has been the subject of many research works. In fact, the simulation of non-spherical bubble dynamics and its interaction with solid boundaries have received much less attention due to the complexity of the problem. One of the main reasons of the structural damages in the cavitation phenomenon is due to the formation of micro jets generated due to the bubble collapse and impinging on the solid surfaces or boundaries.

The boundary integral method (BIM) based on Green’s function is used to model the oscillation and collapse of a cavitation bubble close to a rigid boundary. The liquid is considered to be... (More)
Recently much attention has been paid to studies concerning bubble dynamics in the cavitation phenomena and this topic has been the subject of many research works. In fact, the simulation of non-spherical bubble dynamics and its interaction with solid boundaries have received much less attention due to the complexity of the problem. One of the main reasons of the structural damages in the cavitation phenomenon is due to the formation of micro jets generated due to the bubble collapse and impinging on the solid surfaces or boundaries.

The boundary integral method (BIM) based on Green’s function is used to model the oscillation and collapse of a cavitation bubble close to a rigid boundary. The liquid is considered to be incompressible, inviscid, and irrational around the bubble. These assumptions satisfy the conditions for the Laplacian equation.

The theory permits one to predict correctly the interaction between the bubble and the rigid boundary, which is of great importance in the study of cavitation damage due to a bubble collapsing close to the boundaries. The results reveal that the amplitude of bubble oscillation depends on the bubble location away from a rigid surface. Also, the theory for the cavitation bubble dynamics presented in this study has many advantages in various situations and might be helpful to understand effects of the cavitation phenomenon such as generation of excessive vibration, surface erosion and undesirable acoustic emission.
