This work constitutes a theoretical follow up to our earlier paper in Nature Physics (November 2005) in which we demonstrate that, in the high amplutude limit, ultrasound stimulated microbubble cavitation behaviour can be approximated without the need for a shell parameter, which simplifies matters considerably.<br>We discuss how a high amplitude threshold arises and validate the coding with our own in-house generated experimental data taken with our unique ultra high speed imaging system.
