For a profile exhibiting a cavitation with bubbles, these bubbles will be all the more numerous, smaller and thinner when the microbubbles in the upstream liquid are also numerous. In a certain number of simplified hypotheses, an evolution model with "N bubbles" based on the principle of apparent powers is described. This model makes it possible to assess the evolution of the bubbles' mean radius as well as the change of pressures. The results obtained are compared with tests conducted in the CERG 2 m3/s tunnel.
