The presence of air in the liquid causes the dynamic system behaviour. When solve to issue of the dynamics we often meet problems of cavitation. Cavitation is an undesirable phenomenon, since it causes a disruption of the surrounding material and material destruction. Cavitation is accompanied by loud sound effects and reduces the efficiency of such pumps, etc. Therefore, it is desirable to model systems in which the cavitation might occur. A typical example is a solution of water hammer.
