The nonlinear dynamics of vapor bubbles for the external pressure changing in steps is numerically analyzed based on a complete system of hydrodynamic equations without regard to the internal heat problem. Primary attention is focused on analyzing the applied numerical algorithms and on determining the conditions of complete vapor cavity collapse during first oscillation periods, depending on three parameters: Peclet number, Jacob number, and wave intensity.
