A mercury target for spallation neutron source is subject to pressure waves caused by proton bombarding mercury. The pressure wave propagation induces the cavitation in mercury that imposes pitting damage on the target vessel. In this paper, single micro-bubble behavior in mercury was evaluated using numerical calculation on the basis of bubble dynamics. Impact pressure loading tests using an electro-Magnetic IMpact Testing Machine were performed to measure the impact pressure and acoustic vibration. Additionally, in order to visualize micro-bubble behavior in mercury, high-speed video camera observation was carried out. As the result, we confirmed that the maximum bubble radius and lifetime of micro-bubble are dependent on the imposed pressure and the pressure saturate time and that the acoustic vibration with high frequency components above 15 kHz is exited by the micro-bubble collapse.
