The numerically stable simulation of cavitation effects is mandatory for predicting the friction and wear behavior of translational hydraulic seals. This contribution provides a comparison of two different implementations of the Jakobsson-Floberg-Olsson (JFO) cavitation model, an investigation of their properties and possible options for their stabilization. These methods are tested and compared both within a simple divergent gap test case as well as within an EHL simulation of a rubber metal contact. Based on these comparisons and theoretical investigations, the strengths and weaknesses of the different methods are summarized and discussed with respect to an application in EHL simulations of translational hydraulic seals.
