On the Flow in Centrifugal Impellers

Content Name: On the Flow in Centrifugal Impellers

Literature Type: Article

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.

Fluid Flow in a Rotating Low-Specific-Speed Centrifugal Impeller Passage

Content Name: Fluid Flow in a Rotating Low-Specific-Speed Centrifugal Impeller Passage

Literature Type: Article

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.

Numerical Flow-Field Analysis and Design Optimization of a Centrifugal Pump

Content Name: Numerical Flow-Field Analysis and Design Optimization of a Centrifugal Pump

Literature Type: Article

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.
