Cavitation Cycle

This model shows how the fluid in a custom double acting cylinder can cavitate and recover. During the repeating cycle of oscillating pressure, the absolute pressure does not get below absolute zero as the bulk modulus of the homogeneous liquid-gas mixture decreases accordingly at low pressures.
