Attention was focused on the interaction between vortex and cavitation as a basic study on modeling unsteady turbulent flows with cavitation. First, separated shear layer with cavitation were directly simulated. Cavitation caused by spanwise and streamwise vortices, which are typical features in high shear layer, was represented by a simple model. Experimentally observed tendencies in the location of vortex formation, the frequency of vortex shedding and the intensity of Reynolds stresses were reasonably reproduced. Influence of cavitation on a typical example of streamwise vortex was observed. It was found that the vorticity in the core of Burgers type vortex was significantly reduced. To establish a description of it, we used an artificially maintained Burgers vortex. As a result, an assumption of constant circulation along a closed circle expanding due to sudden development of cavity could represent the modification of the vortex.
