Caption: Cavitation bubble collapse modelling. Supercomputer model of the collapse of cavitation occurring at the nanoscale level. Cavitation is the formation and rapid collapse of small bubbles in liquids, usually due to rapid pressure changes. It is an important consideration in engineering, where it can cause wear and tear on and in structures such as pumps and propellers and other engineering structures. The collapsing bubble (blue, centre) is seen here at the molecular level near a solid surface. This research, carried out in 2010, is intended to help improve the safety and longevity of nuclear reactors, where cavitation can occur.
