Simulating cavitation damage

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #7797142.

Methods and systems provide a simulation of cavitation damage. In one implementation, a computer-implemented method simulates a potential for cavitation damage. According to the method, data defining a modeled component is imported to a flow solver tool. The flow solver tool simulates a liquid that flows through the modeled component. Voids created by the flow of the liquid cause a plurality of vapor implosion pressure events. The method further includes displaying a histogram showing a portion of the modeled component. On the histogram, locations of the plurality of vapor implosion pressure events are visually distinguishable on a surface of the portion of the modeled component.
