CFD Package for Water Pump Design !!!
 
Hi,

Which CFD package is the best for analyzing the water pump, such as centrifugal pump, radial pump, etc. Thanks a lot for your kind comments in advance.

(1). The code can not do analysis by itself yet. (2). So, you need to look for the best person who has experience in water pump analysis. (3). I had done some, but I don't think I am good at it.

Hi, Mr. Chien, Thank you very much for your kind response. You are definitely right. FLUENT can do water pump analysis. However, I would like to know if there is any other commercial CFD software specially good for modelling the water pump. Anybody has experience in water pump analysis, please give me your advice. Thanks.

(1). You probably need more than one software package,because you will need the geometry part,the mesh generation part, the solver part. (2). There are several packages available in these areas. (3). Why not visit the websites of forum sponsors first. You should be able to find some useful packages suitable for your applications. Make sure that you take a look at (a). geometry part, (b). mesh generation part, (c). solver part. (which must be compatible with geometry and mesh) (4). Some users like the accurate solution, and some users love the easy mesh generation. So, it is important to evaluate these requirement in selecting the software, if you have to use the commercial codes.

For rotary pump, CFX-TascFlow is well represented in industry.

Hi,

CFX Tascflow is the best available commercial software for pumps and turbo machines. The other choice can be Numeca software but as far as my knowledge goes it is more suitable for Turbo Machines. You can contact their respective offices regarding your problem.
