Centrifugal Pump Design & Performance
This course is designed to help engineers design, test, and run pumps and systems that are more effective, more economical, and more reliable. Engineers will come to understand the best state-of-the-art design practices and learn the latest theories on performance, cavitation, dynamic forces, and noise. The course will review the latest advances in design tools, and will provide expert and relevant instruction to designers on pump design optimization.
The course begins with an extensive survey of the current technology base for pump design, covering impellers, diffusers, volutes, and other flow elements. The limitations on pump operation and range due to stall and other instabilities are described. Special attention is given to problems and design issues specifically associated with pump flows, namely cavitation, unsteady flow, and vibration. The analysis of stress and vibration in centrifugal pumps will be covered in detail.
Emphasis is placed on modern methods available to the pump designer for blade layout and design, using flexible geometric techniques associated with hydrodynamic loading calculations and the computational fluid dynamic analysis of pump flows. The advantages and limitations of such analysis are reviewed thoroughly by the instructor.What You Will Learn
Dr. Christopher E. Brennen
Dr. David Japikse
Mr. Michael Platt
Participants will receive a copy of Centrifugal Pump Design and Performance by David Japikse, William D. Marscher, and Raymond Furst; and Hydrodynamics of Pumps by Christopher E. Brennen. These two books are durable references of lasting value to all pump engineers.Graduate Course Credit
Graduate credit may be earned for this course by qualified participants who register for course number ME 247 with the University of Vermont and complete the course and approved homework study. The course grade will appear on a University of Vermont transcript and may be transferred to other graduate programs in most recognized colleges and universities in the USA. Contact the Course Registrar at Concepts NREC for more details.
