1 Experiment for axial thrust of shortened impeller back shroud
LU Wei-gang, LI Qi-feng, SHI Wei-dong, WANG Hong-liang
In order to balance the axial thrust of centrifugal pumps,the experiment for the axial thrust of shortened impeller back shroud was done.By assuming different angular velocity for the liquid around impeller,the formula for calculating the axial thrust of shortened impeller back shroud was deduced.By contrasting the calculated values of three different back shroud diameters with measured ones,the revised values of a=0.65,b=0.95 and c=0.45 of angular velocities liquid around impeller were confirmed.The angular velocities for liquid in the blade bevel,in the excided back shroud and in the outside impeller shroud were 0.65ω,0.95ω and 0.45ω respectively,where ω was the impeller angular velocity.As a result,the derived formula provides theoretical basis for calculating the balance of axial thrust of shortened impeller back shroud

ZHANG De-sheng, SHI Wei-dong, LU Wei-gang, CAO Wei-dong
Ten fire pumps with different designs were simulated by SIMPLEC method and standard model.The static pressure,turbulent kinetic energy, streamlines distributions and external performance were analyzed and compared. The results showed as follows.(1) Blade angle of outlet is very sensitive to the pump head and hump;the head increases quickly after appending blades or splitting blades;(2) Splitter blades with good inner flow and turbulent kinetic energy distribution could improve the perfor-mance of pump,such as efficiency,head and so on;(3)The influence on the performance of low specific speed fire pump acted by throat area is sensitive;it has benefit to expand the range of the high efficiency and increase the maximum efficiency by increasing pump throat area

15 Three-dimensional modeling of lamina on axial gas-oil multiphase pump
MA Xi-jin, QU Xin, XIAO Xing-jun
The application and development of the oil-gas multiphase pump are introduced.To keep the homogenization of liquid and gas,and to prevent medium from separating in flowing part,the key for multiphase pump transporting mixture of gas and liquid is to optimize the flow part of the multiphase pump,especially impeller and lamina.By combining the theory of axial pump and axial compressor,the whirly impeller is designed with consideration of static and dynamic lamina in axial pump and axial compressor.The 2D impeller is transformed into 3D space by coordinate-change,and three-dimensional entitative model was built by Pro/E.The result shows that the shape of lamina can be expressed exactly by 3D modeling which is built by Pro/E,and an ideal 3D entitative model can be created at the same time

18 Criteria of blade number selection for low specific speed impeller
YAN Jing, PAN Guang-yu, KAN Neng-qi, WANG Tao
Correct selection of blade number is of vital importance to improve the impeller hydraulic performance.By studying latest data presented by foreign experts and analyzing various factors influencing flow separation and disc friction,the authors draw a conclusion which is opposite to the traditional view: increasing blade number is not an effective way to improve impeller hydraulic performance;instead,after determining wrapping angle of blade,width of impeller at exit and optimizing impeller discharge diameter,reducing blade number to some extent will be beneficial to raise impeller hydraulic efficiency and eliminating hump of pump head-capacity curve.The new theorem provides valuable reference for impeller designers in determining blade number of low specific speed impellers

GUAN Xing-fan, SHANG Ming-hua, XIE Wei-dong, FENG Xu-song
According to the pump requirements of middle and low delivery lift and large flow capacity for the first-stage construction in South-to-North Water Transfers Eastern Route Project,and the actual pump characteristics in Jinhu Pump Station,a hydraulic model and its pilot-plant unit for the cross-flow pump were built.The flow field was calculated and analyzed by computational fluid dynamics(CFD) with FLUENT code,and the hydraulic model was optimized by repeated trials in the pilot cross-flow pump.The simulating results calculated by the hydraulic model(named JGZM-3) coincided with the actual results from the pretest in Jiangsu University and the retest in Hohai University.The testing parameters from the pilot cross-flow pump were as follows: delivery lift 2.82 m,flow capacity 342 L/s,power efficiency 79.05%,and cavitation specific speed 1 105.The pilot pump has the characters of large flow capacity and high power efficiency;and its overall performance indexes reach the advanced level,as the foreign made products.Compared with a like vertical axial-flow pump, the pilot cross-flow pump raised the power efficiency over 5% and flow capacity over 10%.

29 Method of estimating eighth section area of low specific speed pumps
WANG Yang, ZAHNG Xiang
The performance of volute designed by the method of velocity coefficient is affected by the statistics and designer′s experience.The calculation method of the volute eighth section area in the low specific speed pump is deduced,which is based on the correlation between the impeller and the volute. Four 3-D incompressible flow conditions,which consist of the same impeller and four different volutes respectively,are simulated by using the standard k-ε turbulent model and SIMPLE algorithm,and their performance characteristics are also obtained.By verification of corresponding experiment data,a reasonable method in determining the eighth section area is put forward.The pump with this kind of volute can have the best efficiency at the rated flow rate.

37 Drawing method for double channel impeller
ZHANG Jing, QI Xue-yi, HOU Yi-hua
The drawing method for the double channel impeller is studied. It is found that there is an inconformity between the dimensions of plane-view and pinacoid-view of fluid cross-section.The shape of cross-section is an ellipse folded in half through one symmetry axis,and the axis keeps perpendicular with pinacoid-view.Thus the direction of the cross-section is unrelated with center channel curve in plane-view.Traditionally,it is assumed that the cross-section is perpendicular to the center-channel curve.This is not the fact.It is considered that the major cause is resulted from the disagreement among plane view,dimension of cross-section and actual wood former of double channel impeller.A more reasonable design process is proposed.

ZHU Ben-kun
Traditional pump station for water supply systems consumes much energy and its water pressure fluctuation is big.Based on research of a certain pump station for water supply system,and by adopting the self-adapting Fuzzy-PID constant pressure control strategy,which functions by means of adjustment of the number and rotational speed of operating pumps,the water-supply at constant pressure is realized.The MATLAB-based simulation results for the self-adapting Fuzzy-PID control are compared with the traditional PID control simulation results.The experiment results show that the stability of water supply system is greatly improved.

YUAN Shou-qi, ZHU Xing-ye, LI Hong, LIU Jun-ping
The complete fluidic sprinkler was originally developed in China.A software was presented to analyze the data of water distribution.The data can be made visible in multidimensional orientation as a result.By using MATLAB it was proved that the radial data can be changed into net data conveniently and reliably.Three-dimensional water distribution pictures for sprinkler and combined sprinklers were drawn by MATLAB.According to the test data,the total water depth of net point was calculated using superposition method.Then the combined uniformity coefficient of the complete fluidic sprinkler was simulated in different combined spacings.After the simulation,combined spacing coefficient was chosen as 1.2 in the rectangular combination,and 1.5 in the triangular combination.The average uniformity coefficients are 82.4% and 85.7% respectively.A case study shows that MATLAB is reliable for simulating water distribution in sprinkler irrigation.

YANG Min-guan, GAO Bo, GU Hai-fei, LI Hui
In order to get the 3D turbulent flow structures in vortex pump,a test rig was set up.A special model pump was also designed.Laser Doppler Anemometry(LDA) was used to measure the velocity in volute and impeller of the pump.Three velocity components magnitudes were obtained,so was the mean square root fluctuating value.The internal flow consists of forced vortex and free vortex.Velocity distributions in volute are different from those in impeller.The liquid has been pre-swirled at the inlet of impeller.Impact loss is considerable there.Turbulent fluctuating shows isotropic characteristics.The measured data can be used to validate the numerical simulation results.
