Overview

A hands-on, applications-based approach to the design and analysis of commonly used centrifugal pumps

Centrifugal Pump Design presents a clear, practical design procedure that is solidly based on theoretical fluid dynamics fundamentals, without requiring higher math beyond algebra. Intended for use on the factory floor, this book offers a short, easy-to-read description of the fluid mechanic phenomena that occur in pumps, including those revealed by the most recent research. The design procedure incorporates a simple computer program that allows designs to be checked immediately and corrected as needed; readers learn to calibrate the performance calculation program based on their own test data. Other important features of this book include:
* Up-to-date coverage of detailed design data
* Guidance on selection, troubleshooting, and modification of existing pumps
* A numerical example illustrating the design of a pump as readers move through the book
* Manual calculations-including worked examples-and personal computer program listings critical to pump design
* Ample references to all subjects for further study

This unique handbook closes the gap between research and application and puts the fundamentals of advanced fluid mechanics where they will do the most good: in the hands of engineers, teachers, and designers who create industrial pumps.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Introduces advanced fluid mechanic fundamentals to practicing industrial pump designers. Without requiring higher math beyond algebra, the author provides a detailed picture of the flow pattern in centrifugal pumps and a simple pump design procedure based on fundamental understanding instead of empirical formulas. The author explains the principles of instability and turbulence, pipes and bends, cavitation, boundary layers, impellers, blade design, recirculation phenomena, two-phase flow, sand and slurry erosion, and ejector pump systems. An appendix provides Fortran programs for use in solving flow equations for pumps. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
