Paper Abstract

In various pulsed-laser medical applications, strong stress transients can be generated in advance of vapor bubble formation. To better understand the evolution of stress transients and subsequent formation of vapor bubbles, 2D simulations are presented in channel or cylindrical geometry with the LATIS computer code. Differences with 1D modeling are explored, and simulated experimental conditions for vapor bubble generation are presented and compared with data.
