Observation and analysis of streak development leading to group streak breakdown in relation to cavitation inception

Supervisors: Professors Jennifer X Wen and Shengcai Li, Dr. Duncan Billson
PhD student: Mohamed Elghorab
Funding: the Egyptian Armament Authority (EAA), Egypt (2015 to 2018)

Experimental and numerical analysis will be carried out to study the boundary flow leading to the group streak breakdown (GSB) to gain insight of cavitation inception. The experiments will be based on the state of the art facility at Warwick while the numerical model will be carried out using ANSYS as compatible commercial software. The aim is to gain insight of cavitation erosion phenomenon and established a predictive approach for GSB.
