The objective of this work is to evaluate the effect of two different grid types when they are used to simulate cavitating flow using an unsteady Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) solver. In this paper, effects of the finite mass transfer rate with special focus on condensation will be studied in detail.
