Thermal effects substantially impact the cavitation dynamics of high temperature water. This paper strives towards developing an effective computational strategy to simulate thermal cavitation. A transport equation based on mass transfer has been proposed by considering thermodynamic effect. The cavitating flow over a foil at the temperature of 293K and 373K has been calculated to evaluate the feasibility of the proposed model. The result comparison of the proposed model as well as the full cavitation model with the experiment data indicates that the proposed model is suitable for modeling cavitating flow in high temperature water.
