This paper examines the bubble dynamic effects on the stability of parallel bubbly and cavitating flows of low void fraction. Inertial effects associated with the bubble response and energy dissipation due to the viscosity of the liquid, the heat transfer between the two phases, and the liquid comprcssibilily arc included. The equations of motion arc linearized for small perturbations and a modified Rayleigh equation for the inviscid stability of the two-dimensional parallel flow is derived. Numerical solutions of the characteristic problem for the modified Rayleigh equation of a free shear layer are obtained by means of a multiple shooting method. Depending on the dispersion of the gaseous phase in the bubbly mixture, the ambient pressure and the free stream velocities, the presence of air bubbles can induce significant departures from the classical solution for a single-phase fluid. Results arc presented to illustrate the influence of the relevant flow parameters.
