This paper describes an investigation of the flows in unshrouded and shrouded inducers which are known to be highly complex, three dimensional flows with real fluid effects. A flow visualization technique using tufts and paint dots was used to study the flows on the blade, hub and housing at off-design flows. It was found that the blade boundary layer flows… CONTINUE READING
