We present LES results of temporally evolving cavitating shear layers. Cavitation is modeled by a homogeneous equilibrium mixture model whereas the effect of subgrid-scale turbulence is accounted for by the Adaptive Local Deconvolution Method (ALDM). We quantitatively compare LES results with experimental data available in the literature. In terms of computational performance, we present a strong scaling study of our MPI-parallelized in-house FORTRAN code INCA on Cray XE6 “Hermit” at the High Performance Computeing Center Stuttgart (HLRS).
