We present computations of cavitating flow over a NACA0015 hydrofoil. The simulations are performed by a finite volume compressible Euler model with dynamic mesh adaptation. The adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) is driven by a generic, simple and efficient error estimator based on the jump in value between cell faces for a given variable. It is shown that AMR based on vapour fraction provide unsatisfactory results both for (quasi-)steady and unsteady cavitation, as the major flow features are not captured. Instead, adaptivity driven by the Q-value proved successful even for resolving the cavity interface.
