Three different models for the unsteady fluctuations of a slender cavity in the limit of small reduced frequency are compard with the results of quasi-steady calculations. Tullin's kinematically closed model in unsteady flow in soon to tend smoothly to a limiting quasi-steady motion having the same value for the compliance of the cavitating flow, unlike other models that have been used in the past.
