Abstract: The effect of boiling and cavitation phenomena on nucleation was first experimentally studied. Results highlight the fact that the "classical" theory of nucleation cannot describe such a configuration. New theoretical approaches were proposed in order to describe the dynamic effects which occur when the liquid pressure oscillates over time and when a heat flux imposed to the system. It then appears that the dynamic and the hysteresis of the contact angle may play a significant role in nucleation by simultaneous boiling and cavitation effects.
