Cavitation Measurements

Inception probability of tip vortex cavitation

KED Photonics GmbH in Liquidation offers measurement techniques for quantitative characterization of cavitation parameters and cavitation phenomena, especially for the verification of maritime propulsion systems at model scale.

Measurable process parameters

– Water quality measurements, especially quantitative measurements of nuclei/bubble concentration

– Bubble size distribution incl. void fraction with high temporal resolution (typical temporal resolution 100 ms, depending on number concentration of the disperse phase)

– Cavitation characterization, especially time-resolved and statistical measurements for cavitation distribution, tip vortex dynamics and cavitation occurrence

– Multidimensional, time-resolved flow velocity measurements
