cavitation is bubbles of compressible gas inside of a fluid.
flash evaporation is the single stage fluid->gas transiation.

These aren't 100% related. You mention CFD. Are you trying to make a model for heating fluid to the point it evaporates then computing how the caviation (bubbles formed) effect your process? Otherwise not sure what your end game here is.
