Content Name: On the Flow in Centrifugal Impellers
Description: University Thesis by Franciscus Cornelis Visser. Computing the two-dimensional potential flow in radial-flow impellers, in particular by using the theory of functions of a complex variable, is not a recent development but has been done by a number of notable authors since the early years of this century.
Literature Number: TA_1996_001
Content Name: Fluid Flow in a Rotating Low-Specific-Speed Centrifugal Impeller Passage
Description: Technical article wherein the results from experimental investigations of the blade passage ow in a model pump impeller of low specific speed are described. It is found that the flow inside the rotating impeller passages is well described by the flow distribution postulated by potential-flow arguments and boundary-layer considerations. By F.C. Visser, J.J.H. Brouwers, and J.B. Jonker. Reprinted from Fluid Dynamics Research, Volume 24, Issue 5, May 1999, Pages 275-292.

Literature Number: FPD-1577 (E)
Content Name: Numerical Flow-Field Analysis and Design Optimization of a Centrifugal Pump
Description: Technical paper discussing the numerical flow-field analysis and design optimization of first-stage impellers on a high-energy centrifugal pump having two single-suction first-stage impellers and one double-suction second stage impeller. This study has been carried out with the aid of three-dimensional computational-fluid-dynamics calculations, employing the potential-flow approximation of the governing equations. The study was conducted because the first-stage impellers appeared to suffer from severe premature wear due to cavitation on the vane leading edges. By F.C. Visser, R.J.H. Dijkers, and J.G.H. op de Woerd. Reprinted from Computing and Visualization in Science; J. Comput Visual Sci (2000) 3: 103.
Literature Number: TA_2000_001
Content Name: A New Line of Defence
Description: Due to the worldwide response to the Fukushima nuclear accident by regulatory authorities, the ability of reactor coolant pump mechanical seals to cope with the effects of a Station Blackout (SBO) and consequent Loss of Seal Cooling (LOSC) are being investigated. The ability of the Flowserve N-Seal primary pump seal to cope during a LOSC event has been further enhanced the addition of the passive abeyance seal. By Mark E. Sanville. Reprinted from Nuclear Engineering International, October 2013.
