The Effects of the Back Clearance Size and the Balance Holes on the Back Clearance Flow of the Centrifugal Pump with Semi-Open Impeller. (December 2008) Sang Hyun Park, B.S., Yonsei University, Korea; M.S., Texas A&M University Chair of Advisory Committee: Dr. Gerald Morrison Conventionally the size of the back clearance played a great importance on reducing the axial clearance by utilizing the concept that the decreased axial clearance results in lower axial force acting on the impeller… 
Effect of Axial Clearance on the Efficiency of a Shrouded Centrifugal Pump
Clearance always exists between the rotating impeller shrouds and the stationary casing covers in shrouded centrifugal pumps, which affects the pump internal flow and performance. Model tests were
Effect of Leakage Flow Path Wear on Axial Thrust in Downhole Electrical Submersible Pump Unit
Subsea production fluid is quite often characterized by the presence of frac sand, which causes wear within the pump, and alters the performance envelop. One of the design parameters critically
Coarse Particle Motion Characteristics in a Double-Stage Slurry Pump Considering Leakage Flow
Along with the pressing demand for the long-distance transportation of coarse particles in the deep-sea mining industry, evaluating the slurry pump’s passing through and erosive wear by studying the


Experimental Evaluation of the Flow Inside an Open Faced Impeller
The pressure distributions and forces presented in a thesis by Hossain [1] for a centrifugal pump illustrated a somewhat complex inter-relationship between various geometric and operating parameters
Theoretical and Experimental Investigation on the Flow Induced Vibrations of a Centrifugal Pump
The transport of fluids which include a lot of impurities is often done by special single-stage pumps. In order to avoid clogging of the pumps, the impellers have only one blade. This minimum blade
Numerical Simulation of the Dynamic Effects Due to Impeller-Volute Interaction in a Centrifugal Pump
We show the capability of a numerical simulation in capturing the dynamic and unsteady flow effects inside a centrifugal pump due to the impeller-volute interaction. The object of the study is a
Flow in a Centrifugal Pump Impeller at Design and Off-Design Conditions—Part II: Large Eddy Simulations
The flow field in a shrouded six-bladed centrifugal pump impeller has been investigated using large eddy simulation (LES). The effect of the subgrid scales has been modeled through a localized
Quantitative Visualization of the Flow Within the Volute of a Centrifugal Pump. Part B: Results and Analysis
PDV is used for measuring the velocity within the volute of a centrifugal pump at different impeller blade orientations, on and off design conditions. It is demonstrated that the flow is “pulsating”
Unsteady Flow Structure and Global Variables in a Centrifugal Pump
A relationship between the global variables and the dynamic flow structure numerically obtained for a low specific speed centrifugal pump is presented in this paper. A previously developed unsteady
Impact of three-dimensional phenomena on the design of rotodynamic pumps
Abstract Three-dimensional Navier—Stokes calculations are expected to be increasingly applied in the future for performance improvement of rotodynamic pumps. Frequently such an optimization process
Flow in a Centrifugal Pump Impeller at Design and Off-Design Conditions—Part I: Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) Measurements
Detailed optical measurements of the flow inside the rotating passages of a six-bladed shrouded centrifugal pump impeller of industrial design have been performed using particle image velocimetry
Unsteady Flow Field and Noise Generation in a Centrifugal Pump Impeller With a Vaneless Diffuser
To improve understanding of the phenomena of stall in centrifugal pumps, extensive research was conducted to investigate the impact on flow field instabilities and the noise generated in a pump
LES of open rotor–stator flow
Abstract Computer experiments (LES) of the axisymmetric and statistically steady turbulent flow between a rotating and a fixed disk have been performed. This flow is a representative of the flow in
