Abstract The article deals with the determination of flow characteristics and loss coefficients of control valve when the water flows in the interval of operating parameters, including the evaluation of vapour and air cavitation regime. The characteristics of the control valve are measured on the experimental equipment and subsequently loss coefficients are determined. Data from experimental measurements are used for creating of mathematical model with vapour and air cavitation and verification results. This validation will enable the application of methods of numerical modelling for valves of atypical dimensions e.g. for use in nuclear power industry. The correct knowledge of the valve characteristics and fundamental coefficients (e.g. flow coefficient, cavitation coefficient and loss coefficient) is necessarily required primarily for designers of pipe networks.
