A general cavitation algorithm is presented that accommodates for an arbitrary density-pressure relation. Here it is possible to model the compressibility of the lubricant in such way the density-pressure relation is realistic from sub-cavity to high pressure regions respectively. The algorithm preserves mass continuity which is of importance when inter-asperity cavitation of rough surfaces is considered. Results with this algorithm for different density-pressure relations are presented and discussed.
