Population

Cavite has a total population of 2,856,765 within an area of 1,297.6 square kilometers. It has the largest population in the country. The tremendous increase can be observed in the year 1990 when industrialization was introduced in the province. Investors established their businesses in different industrial estates that magnetized people to migrate to Cavite due to job opportunities the province offers. Another factor attributed to the increase of population is the mushrooming of housing subdivisions. Since Cavite is proximate to Metro Manila, people working in the metropolitan area choose to live in the province together with their families. Natural increase also contributes to the increase in population. For the capital city of the Philippines, see Manila. ...

Chabacano, sometimes spelled as Chavacano, is the dialect mostly spoken by majority of the Caviteños that lived in Cavite City and Ternate, whose origin has begun during the arrival of the first Spaniards three centuries ago.

Economy

Cavite is one of the fastest growing provinces in the country due to its close proximity to Metro Manila. Many companies, such as Intel, have established manufacturing plants in numerous industrial parks in the province. For the capital city of the Philippines, see Manila. ... Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC, SEHK: 4335), founded in 1968 as Integrated Electronics Corporation, is an American multinational corporation that is best known for designing and manufacturing microprocessors and specialized integrated circuits. ...


It has indeed transformed into an industrial and commercial hub not only in CALABARZON but in the whole country as well. As of 2003, there are thirty-one (31) industrial estates in the province.

Transportation

Rush hour traffic in the Dasmariñas section of Aguinaldo Highway.

The total road network comprises roughly 1,973 kilometers. The 407.7 kilometers national roads are mostly paved with concrete or asphalt and are relatively in good condition although there are portions that need rehabilitation. The provincial roads stretched to an approximate total length of 335.1 kilometers. Most of these roads are concrete, some are paved with asphalt and the rest remain gravel roads. Majority of the municipal/city roads are paved with concrete, while barangay roads consist of 46.7% concrete and asphalt roads and 53.3% earth and gravel roads. Image File history File links Metadata No higher resolution available. ... Image File history File links Metadata No higher resolution available. ...


The existing road length, when computed in terms of road density with respect to population at the standard of 2.4 kilometers per 1,000 population, has a deficit of 3,532.71 kilometers. This indicates that construction of more roads is necessary. However, limitation of the available land area for road use especially in the urban municipalities and cities might impede construction of additional roads in the said areas.


The progress of Cavite in the last decade has been phenomenal. It is noticeable, however, that transport infrastructure has not kept paced with the mushrooming of industrial and commercial activities. The results: crazy quilts of urban sprawl, traffic congestion resulting to long hours wasted daily on the roads, and increasing road accidents.


The section of Aguinaldo Highway (at Bacoor, Imus and Dasmariñas) is now experiencing traffic volume of 20% in excess of its designed capacity. Without any drastic improvements in the road network of Cavite, this same section would be saddled with traffic volumes 5 times more than its capacity in 2005 and 11 times more in 2015.


With the province's fast pace of developments, entrance and exit routes to and from Cavite are no longer sufficient to decongest traffic along major thoroughfares. The lack of transportation facilities, traffic control systems and insufficient road signages, and substandard road structures in some areas further aggravate the situation. Likewise, observed mixed traffic (pedestrian, public transport modes – jeepneys, tricycles, cars) along streets/roads, especially in the business districts adds up to the traffic problem. These have tremendous repercussions on the economy in the area – longer travel time incur costs to people thereby contributing to losses in industrial and commercial businesses, and even to entrepreneurial activities.

Cavite got its name from a Tagalog word "Kawit" (which means "Hook.") owing to the hook-shaped land on the Old Spanish map. The land was formerly known as "Tangway" where Spanish authorities contructed a fort from which the city of Cavite rose. Archeological evidence in coastal areas shows prehistorical settlements. According to local folklore, the earliest settlers of Cavite came from Borneo. In the 1600s, encomiendas or Spanish Royal land grants were given in Cavite and Marsgondon. Jesuit priests brought in settlers from Mollucas. These settlers, known as "Mardicas," settled in Ternate and Maragondon.


Other settlements grew and by the turn of the century, Cavite towns were already trading with one another. Traditional industries began to thrive as Manila's commerce grew. In 1872, Filipinos launched its revolt against Spain. Three Filipino priests--Jose Burgos, Mariano Gomez,and Jacinto Zamora--were implicated in the Cavite mutiny when 200 Filipinos staged a rebellion within Spanish garrisons. In 28 August 1896, when the revolution against Spain broke out, Cavite became a bloody theater of war. Led by Emilio Aguinaldo, Caviteños made lightning raids on Spanish headquarters, and soon liberated the entire province. Aguinaldo commanded the Revolution to its successful end:the proclamation of the first Republic in Asia, the Republic of the Philippines, on 12 June 1898 in Kawit. is the 240th day of the year (241st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Cavitation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1795 words)
Cavitation is a general term used to describe the behaviour of voids or bubbles in a liquid.
Such cavitation often occurs in pumps, propellers, impellers,and in the vascular tissues of plants.Non-inertial cavitation is the process where a bubble in a fluid is forced to oscillate in size or shape due to some form of energy input, such as an acoustic field.
Non-inertial cavitation is the process where small bubbles in a liquid are forced to oscillate in the presence of an acoustic field, when the intensity of the acoustic field is insufficient to cause total bubble collapse.
cavitation: Definition and Much More From Answers.com (2034 words)
Cavitation in the engineering sense is characterized by an explosive growth and occurs at suitable combinations of low pressure and high speed in pipelines; in hydraulic machines such as turbines, pumps, and propellers; on submerged hydrofoils; behind blunt submerged bodies; and in the cores of vortical structures.
Cavitation is undesirable because it produces extensive erosion of the rotating blades, additional noise from the resultant knocking and vibrations, and a significant reduction of efficiency because it distorts the flow pattern.
Cavitation is the phenomenon where small and largely empty cavities are generated in a fluid, which expand to large size and then rapidly collapse, producing a sharp sound.
