ZHAO Bin-juan, YUAN Shou-qi, LIU Hou-lin, HUANG Zhong-fu, TAN Ming-gao
Based on the differential equation method,a body-fitted grid generation code was developed for the 3-D body-fitted structured grids.Laplace equation with additional source terms was employed,and source terms were built according to Thompson and Sorenson′s thought by interpolation of exponential function.With the grid generated by this method,the turbulent inner flow within the double-channel impeller was calculated.It is concluded that the grid has good quality to improve the efficiency and precision of inner flow calculation within the double-channel impeller,its size can be human controlled,and grid lines are orthogonal to boundary walls to feed in turbulent wall boundary conditions conveniently.After approp-riate adjustment,the code can also be used to generate the mesh of other irregular flow channels.

15 Design for modeling 3D double-channel impeller in Pro/E
QI Xue-yi, ZHANG Jing, HOU Yi-hua, YANG Guo-lai
The impeller of double channel sewage pump is different from common centrifugal pump.So the method of building 3D model needs to be further explored.Modeling 3D shape of the impeller in Pro/E was carried out.3D passage center-line is generated by projection,then it is made as the original tra-jectory to produce inner passage by command sweep and blend,with passage cross-sections as sections.Inner passage center-line is extended to the outer diameter of the impeller with its rule formula,the curve resulted is regarded as a original trajectory,and sections are placed in proper position through outer passage profile line.Then the outer passage can be made by command sweep and blend.A failure to form double-inner-channel is very likely to be encountered during the process of transforming 2D drawing to 3D model of double-channel impeller.If such thing happens,the position and direction of cross-section should be adjusted first,then the shape of cross section and passage center-line can be changed.

HU Jing-ning, SUN Yan-li, GONG En-xiang, TIAN Hai-ping, LI Zhi-qing
Fracture often occurs suddenly at the start-up to the impeller of high-temperature tower bottom slurry oil pump when it has been used for a period of time.To find the cause of this phenomenon,some possible factors are considered.A series of experiments were done from the macroscopic inspection which was aimed at the breakpoints to the microscopic tests,such as material composition test and hardness measurement to the impeller.Metallurgical structure test to the breakpoints were done to the model in which this phenomenon most occurred.Thermal shock theory was also applied to the failure analysis to the impeller.The analysis and test proved that there are serious casting defect in the impeller and deviation during the heat treatment and strength reduction in high temperature environment.Among them,stress derived thermal shock were the main cause for the failure of impeller.Through the improvements in the aspects of impeller structure,casting and heat treatment process,and the operating regulation during star-up,the problem of impeller fracture has been basically solved.

23 Important effect of state of water quality on cavitation pressure performance of pump device
CHANG Jin-shi
Through the experimental study on the cavitation pressure characteristics at different water qualities important conclusions are drawn.When water is at temperature of 20 ℃ the value of cavitation pressure of the clear water depends on the quantity of the ionization of cosmic rays at the ground;while the cavitation pressure characteristic of the sediment-laden water depends only on the density of sediment-laden in the water.The article gives the theory and method to calculate and confirm the suction head Hs and the cavitation margin NPSH by considering the effect of water quality on the cavitation pressure.

WANG Chun-lin, SI Yan-lei, ZHENG Hai-xia, PENG Na, ZHAO Bai-tong, ZHANG Hao
The three-dimensional incompressible turbulent flow of coupled impeller and volute was simulated by using reynolds time-averaged N-S equations,the standard k-ε turbulent model, three-dimensional non-structural tetrahedral mesh and multiple reference frame of rotating fluid mechanical model.The velocity and pressure distributions in the volute and impeller were obtained.The relative velocity and pressure distributions in the impeller interior were analyzed in detail.It was proved that the interior flow field of impeller is nonsymmetrical due to the interaction of impeller and volute in different relative position.The velocity in the volute nearby the impeller outlet was higher.It was found that the interior flow in the volute was turbulent due to its complicated structure,and can result in some loss.In addition.It was revealed that those vortexes exist nearby the clapboard and in the separation chamber.The reason was analyzed and discussed.

GONG En-xiang, TIAN Hai-ping, WANG Run-sheng, LI Qiang, SONG Wei-wei
Concerning to the present problems,the structure of a new type of non-leakage vertical self-priming pump is improved by fitting impeller and vane together,setting ribbed slab in moisture separation chamber to shorten the self-priming time,taking special structure at inlet to prevent siphonage without using check-valve or vacuum breaking valve,and adopting rotating dynamic seal and framework oil seal to avoid the problems such as leakage of packing seal and maintenance for mechanical seal.According to the comparison of the pre and post structures′ test results,it is concluded that the gap between vane and impeller and the structure of rotating dynamic seal have great effect on self-priming performance,and it is necessary to balance the axial force.Improved approach and analysis calculation which are useful for reasonable design are recommended in detail associated with experimental data.

ZHENG Yuan, YAN Ji-song, ZHANG Zhan, XU Guang-wen
The hydraulic characteristics in water diversion bifurcated pipes in pumped storage plant were calculated by 3-D numerical simulation under different operation conditions(pumping or generating)and different flow ratio(single machine operation or many).Unstructured grid was used to discretize the model,finite volume method was used to divert equation′s integral pattern into algebra equations,second order upwind scheme was used and calculated by implicit method to ensure precision,and SIMPLE method was adopted to couple pressure and velocity.Water head loss and the flow pattern were analyzed under various conditions in bifurcated pipes.It is shown that the computation results are consistent with the experimental data.Because the energy transfers after converging current from different energy,water head loss in pumping is minus,the flow pattern in generating is better than that in pumping;and water head loss is larger in generating and smaller in pumping.The results provide the basis for turbine′s running mode,and minimize the energy loss to the least.

LI Hong, CHEN Chao, XIANG Qing-jiang
Erosion wear is the main abrasion to the jet element of complete fluidic sprinkler.In order to study the effects on the reliability of complete fluidic sprinkler by erosion wear,three failure indexes about complete fluidic sprinkler were defined as droplet diameter of the distal end of sprinkler,stepping frequency and stepping angle.A wear and tear test was conducted under the mass concentration of 1%,2% and 3%.The hydraulic performances were studied in the test,including the changing rules with the time of flux of nozzle,the flux of signal tube and the diameter of droplet at the end of spray.The test results indicate that the extent of the change of hydraulic performance,droplet diameter of the distal end of sprinkler,stepping frequency and stepping angle,increase with the mass concentration,while the effects on hydraulic performance decrease gradually with the mass concentration.Signal Tube 1 is the wearing terrain,so it should be made with wear resistant material to increase the reliability of sprinkler.

SUN Bu-gong, GONG Jun, XIN Zhou
To solve the problem of vibration in the disc separator for drip irrigation of Yellow River water-mud,the calculation and test of whole machine full speed dynamic balance of disc separator are carried out based on the influence coefficient method.The separator is fitted at the testing rig,with test spots on the top botton of bearing.The equation is the informal complex linear equation when the number of testing spots is more than that of correction planes.Conjugate transpose matrix equation is multiplied by the original equation to get the corresponding complex equations.The new equation is resolved by the method of main element elimination in the complex field.The equalized complex numbers in all adjusting planes are transformed into vectors.The approximate optimization solution of equalizing weight is calculated by programming.The specialties of resolving approximate optimization solution of inconsistent equations by the least square method are analyzed. The result shows that the balance based on method of influence coefficient method has better effects,which make the separator vibration restrained and operating effectively.
