Cavitation of concrete

Cavitation is a physical process that causes pitting of surface due to rise in local pressure by collapse of vapour bubbles. Cavitation can damage the concrete in following ways: (i) due to shock waves generated by bubble implosion;(ii) by the micro-jets due to bubble implosion;(iii) collapse of bubble clustersCavitation generally occurs in hydraulic channel and … Continue reading Cavitation of concrete
