The unsteady two dimensional CFD for the cavitation in a orifice passage were carried out by using a commercial software ANSYS-CFX. The mass flow rate and the static pressure were controlled at the inlet and the outlet boundaries respectively. The CFD result showed periodic fluctuation of the cavitation flow. The time derivative of the cavitation volume showed relatively good agreement with the difference of the inlet and the outlet volume flow rate. The periodic fluctuation was ceased by the extension of the passage length downstream of the cavitation. The periodic fluctuation of cavitation flow was also induced by the fluctuation of the inlet volume flow rate or the fluctuation of the outlet static pressure. The dynamic flow behavior of the closed loop system including the orifice were analyzed by using the orifice cavitation CFD with the inlet and the outlet boundary conditions derived from the lumped parameter system dynamics for the tank, the pump and the pipes in the loop.
