The onset of cavitation in a high Reynolds number, two-dimensional open cavity shear flow occurs on top of the cavity trailing edge, well before it appears in the shear layer. However, the cavitation there disappears periodically, even at pressures that are much lower than inception level and when cavitation expands to the shear layer upstream. The primary cause for this phenomenon is periodic elimination of the pressure minimum on top of the corner due to flow induced by shear layer vorticesdoi:10.1063/1.2897320 fatcat:mrbrerw4qbhwzi5s6bofa7wjhe
