Evaluation of the hydrodynamic pressure of cavitation impacts from stress-strain analysis and geometry of individual pits

The present paper focuses on the development of an inverse procedure able to infer the hydrodynamic pressure distribution acting on the material surface and responsible for the creation of the cavitation pit based on the stress in a cavitation pit and its geometrical features. To achieve this goal, experimental pitting and nanoindentation measurement techniques were used together with a model of pit formation based on a Gaussian distribution of the hydrodynamic impact pressure pulse.
