Hydrodynamics of Pumps is a reference for pump experts and a
textbook for advanced students exploring pumps and pump design.
This book is about the fluid dynamics of liquid turbomachines,
particularly pumps. It focuses on special problems and design
issues associated with the flow of liquid through a rotating
machine. There are two characteristics of a liquid that lead to
problems and cause a significantly different set of concerns than
those in gas turbines. These are the potential for cavitation and
the high density of liquids, which enhances the possibility of
damaging, unsteady flows and forces. The book begins with an
introduction to the subject, including cavitation, unsteady flows,
and turbomachinery as well as basic pump design and performance
principles. Chapter topics include flow features, cavitation
parameters and inception, bubble dynamics, cavitation effects on
pump performance, and unsteady flows and vibration in pumps
discussed in the three final chapters. The book is richly
illustrated and includes many practical examples.
