99 Influence of abnormally low head on pressure fluctuation of pump turbine
LI Qifei, TAN Haiyan, LI Rennian, JIANG Lei, LYU Wenjuan
In order to study the pressure fluctuation characteristics of a pump turbine under the abnormally low head, Realizable k-ε turbulence model is used to simulate the unsteady flow of four opera-ting points. The pressure signals of the four monitoring points,i.e. in the inlet of spiral casing, after the guide vanes and before the runner, in the upstream of the draft tube cone and inside the draft tube elbow, are achieved and compared with the experimental results. And then, the pressure signals under the operating condition a0=37 mm and Q11=0.865 m3/s are analyzed in the time domain and frequency domain respectively. It is concluded that Realizable k-ε turbulence model can accurately si-mulate the pressure fluctuation in the larger guide opening of pump turbine. The pressure fluctuation of the inlet of the spiral casing is relatively disorder. When the unit is just open, the pressure fluctuation value is relatively great. The main frequency of pressure fluctuation in the inlet of the spiral casing is 19.78 Hz, equal to the rotational frequency,showing that in this condition, the pressure fluctuation in the inlet of spiral casing of the pump turbine is influenced by the rotating of the runner in the downstream. Because the pressure fluctuation in the vaneless space between the guide vane and the runner is affected by the static and dynamic interference, its change is periodic and main frequency is equal to the blade passing frequency. Owing to the internal flow and the vortex strip in the draft tube, the pressure fluctuation in the draft tube is a low-frequency fluctuation and its main frequency is 0.35 times the frequency of the runner passing through.

105 Effects of volute cross-section shape and impeller position on volute type axial flow pump performance
WANG Dangxiong, CAO Weidong, ZHANG Yining, LIU Xiaojuan, MA Jinxing
In view of this situation that the study on the volute type axial flow pump volute design optimization, the external features and internal flow field distribution is less, the 3D flow in the volute type axial flow pump was numerically simulated by using ANSYS CFX 14.5 software, based on Reynolds-averaged equations closed by the standard k-ε model. Three kinds of new volutes combined with impellers were simulated. The head and efficiency at the design flow rate are the lowest in case of horseshoe-section volute. The 3D flow numerical simulation between the impeller at 4 different axial positions and the volute in terms of relatively higher hydraulic efficiency was carried out. The results show that when the exit of the impeller and the volute inlet middle plane are 40 mm apart, axial flow pump efficiency is the highest. When the impeller exit and the volute inlet middle plane are 80 mm apart, axial flow pump efficiency is the lowest. In this case, between the impeller and volute and in the volute exist substantial reflux and whirlpool. The relative position of axial flow impeller and volute have ob-viously affects the flow-head curve and the flow-efficiency curve.

110 Influences of guide vane-casing volute positions on performance of nuclear reactor coolant pump
YANG Minguan, WANG Da, GAO Bo, LU Sheng
Three-dimensional numerical simulations of the internal flow field, based on Reynolds-average equations and RNG k-ε turbulence model, are carried out in the study on axial and circumfe-rential positions between guide vane and casing volute of a ns=390 mixed-flow nuclear reactor coolant pump. Energy performance is used to analyze internal flow and acquire the prime position between guide vane and casing volute. The result shows that different positions have an influence on hydraulic efficiency and internal flow. Hydraulic efficiency in an ideal position scheme has increased by 0.6%, equal to 1/4 of guide vane outlet width, between the shroud and central plane of casing outlet. Meanwhile, it has increased by 0.8% with a better internal flow performance as the symmetric axial plane and the vane outlet are at the same circumferential position. Results contribute to the design and optimization of a nuclear pump as well as internal flow control.

115 Numerical analysis on velocity field of water-jet pump under non-uniform inflow
JIN Shibin, CAO Puyu, WANG Yang
To research the correlation between non-uniform inflow and the hydrodynamics of water-jet pump, the outflow velocity field in the intake duct was analyzed by the CFX-Post software. The velocity field of non-uniform outflow was selected as the inflow boundary condition in the process of simulation, and the hydrodynamics of water-jet pump was achieved. Then the comparison of hydrodynamics between non-uniform and uniform inflow conditions was carried out. The results show that the hydrodynamics of water-jet pump in the non-uniform inflow condition is lower than that in the uniform inflow condition. With the non-uniformity of the inflow field increasing, the decreasing amplitude of the head and efficiency is increasing. According to velocity components of non-uniform, the reason that the pump hydrodynamics reduced in the non-uniform inflow condition was analyzed. Results show that the traditional design method can not meet the working requirements, and the correlation assumptions are unavailable to the condition of non-uniform inflow. The existence of inlet pre-swirling in the non-uniform inflow field is against the "no pre-swirling" hypothesis, so the angle of attack and the lift coefficient of airfoils decrease. The interaction between axial and radial velocity in the non-uniform inflow field results in the nonlinear distribution of the meridional velocity and circulation. The circumference independence assumption is invalid owing to the change of radial velocity. The non-uniform inflow also impacts the field of blades, which is concentrated at the shroud. The secondary circumfluence blocks the flow passages, and weakens the flow capacity of the water-jet pump. Meanwhile, it contributes to the deviation curve of blade loading at the shroud, and impairs the working ability of the water-jet pump. In conclusion, the non-uniform inflow is the major reason for the decrement of propulsion efficiency,therefore the non-uniform inflow condition should be considered during the process of water-jet pump designing.

122 Internal flow analysis of centrifugal pumps influenced by flow, motor and electricity
SUN Hui, YUAN Shouqi, LUO Yin, GUO Yihang
In order to improve the accuracy of unsteady load torque computational results for centrifugal pumps, the type IS65-50-160-00 centrifugal pump and Y160M-2 B3 three-phase asynchronous motor were selected as computational model. Joint simulation of the centrifugal pump and motor was conducted by means of software Fluent and Matlab. The C++ interface program for software communication was designed on basis of TCP/IP communication protocol. A bidirectional synchronization coupling simulation platform was established. This could realize data transmission of rotational speed and torque during the process of computing unsteady characteristics of centrifugal pumps. It was shown that if the rotating speed was set as constant, the calculated pump head and efficiency were deviated from experimental data by 8.66% and 5.24% under the design condition. But if the rotating speed was set as variable, the calculated pump head and efficiency were deviated from experimental data by 2.45% and 2.47% under the design condition. This means the method could provide more correct and reliable prediction performance of pump. This joint simulation method based on Fluent/Matlab has brought into the effect of motor on pump operation and considered the fact of variable rotating speed. The method has improved the accuracy and reliability of calculating results, which could provide a new method for further research on internal unsteady flow characteristics of centrifugal pumps.

The position and degree of sediment erosion in the Francis turbine passage were analyzed. The simulation results coincided with the distribution of sediment particles on the blade runner practical wear. The results show that this method can be used to simulate the 3D turbulent flow and true multiphase flow with sediment erosion in Francis turbine,which provides a significant reference for revealing the influence mechanism of the sediment particles interacting with water in the solid-liquid two-phase turbulent flow field that can induce turbine vibration and solving practical engineering problems.

157 Effects of soil salt on soil water-salt dynamic and photosynthetic characteristics of spring wheat
PEI Lei,, WANG Zhenhua,, ZHENG Xurong,, LI Wenhao,
Barrel experiment was carried out to investigate the effects of soil salt content on soil water-salt dynamics and physiological indices of drip irrigated spring wheat and to provide theoretical foundation and technical support for planting spring wheat in saline-alkali soils. Different soil salt contents(i.e. 0.15%(CK), 0.80%, 1.10%, 1.40%, 1.70%, 2.00%, 2.30%, 2.60%)were set up; soil water-salt dynamics and physiological indices of drip irrigated spring wheat were studied. The results showed that the overall variation of soil water content presented a decreasing trend in the whole growth period of spring wheat. With the increase of soil depth, the soil water content and the salt content showed an increasing trend. The greater the soil salt content is, the higher the averaged soil water content is. Compared with the soil salt content before sowing, the salt content of each treatment in 0 to 40 cm soil layer decreased at harvest time, indicating a desalination process during the growth period. Spring wheat treatments with initial soil salt contents of 0.15%, 0.80% and 1.10% had the highest leaf water use efficiency and a relatively high net photosynthetic rate.

HOU Xianqing, TANG Jing, YU Longlong, ZHAO Fengping, WANG Quanwang, HU Enjuan, WEI Kerun
Taking conventional tillage with no mulch as control, a field experiment was carried out by means of no-tillage and subsoiling combined with mulch after the autumn crop harvest on soil water status on the growth, yield and water use efficiency(WUE)of potato. The soil water conservation effect of different mulching tillage patterns was investigated in winter and spring fallow stages. The results show that, the storage capacity of soil at 0-200 cm deep soil was obviously increased with the mulching tillage treatments in the fallow stages. The storage capacity of soil at 0-200 cm depths of no-tillage with mulch, subsoiling with mulch, and conventional tillage with mulch was increased by 7.6%, 9.3% and 8.0%, respectively compared with the control. The storage capacity of soil at 0-60 cm soil layers during the early growth period of potato was greatly improved by different tillage measures combined with film mulch. Those combined with straw mulch have the best water conservation at 0-200 cm soil layers during its later growth period. The mulch with different tillage treatments significantly accelerated the growth in the early stage of potato, and the effect of the straw mulch with different tillage treatments on its growth in the later growth period was most obvious. The potato yield and WUE with the straw mulch with no-tillage,subsoiling and conventional tillage treatments were the highest, and the yield of potato significantly increased by 51.2%, 42.8% and 35.3%, respectively and WUE increased by 50.0%, 42.3% and 32.3%, respectively compared with the control. Obviousy, the straw mulch with different tillage treatments can play an important role in water and soil conservation, rasing potato yield and water use efficiency.

173 Estimation of micro-irrigation water application uniformity based on sample emitter flow variation
JU Xueliang,, WU Pute,, ZHU Delan, ZHANG Lin,
The field estimation of water application uniformity is the major way to assess the hydraulic design, operation and management and the equipment quality of the micro-irrigation system. The traditional emitter flow variation using the maximum, minimum and average emitter discharge was only used as the hydraulic design uniformity criterion, which could not be used to evaluate the field water application of micro-irrigation systems. The sample emitter flow variation was defined to evaluate the field water application uniformity. The relationships between the sample emitter flow variation and the other traditional indexes of water application uniformity were developed based on the assumption that the emitter flow of the field micro-irrigation systems obeys the normal distribution. The related formulations of sample errors were derived. The sample size and grouping number were also proposed. The criteria of sample emitter flow variation under different sample grouping number were proposed by comparison with those of the ASABE and GB. The estimation procedure of sample emitter flow variation was then proposed to assess the field water application uniformity. The application case indicated that the new method is easily adaptable and reliable for estimating the field water application uniformity.

179 Running speed and pressure head loss of the light and small sprinkler irrigation system
CAO Hua,, GUO Fengtai, FAN Yongshen, DUAN Fuyi, HAN Qibiao, JIA Yanhui, CHEN Zhen
In order to study the reasonable value of the light and small sprinkler irrigation system′s running speed under the low-pressure sprinkler irrigation, and the relation between the working pressure and the pressure head loss of sprinkler irrigation system, the light and small sprinkler irrigation system was taken as the research object, and through the indoor sprinkler irrigation test, the relation between the system′s running speed and irrigation quota under a certain working pressure and flow rate was studied, in addition the local head loss and the frictional head loss of the system were analyzed. The results show that irrigation quota has a certain relationship with the running speed and working pressure of the light and small sprinkler irrigation system, thus the corresponding running speed may be modulated by determining the irrigation quota. The outlet pressure at the sprayer of the spraying car can increase with the increase of the single sprinkler pressure of the reel truck in the light and small sprinkler irrigation system. However, the increase rate of the outlet pressure will decrease when the single sprinkler pressure increases to a certain extent. Therefore, within the normal operating range of the system, its inlet pressure can be decreased to an appropriate range so as to reduce the pressure head loss of the system, save energy and reduce the operating cost of the system. As the light and small sprinkler irrigation system has a wide development prospect in China, this research will be of great significance in improving the performance of the light and small sprinkler irrigation system in China and provide a reference for the development of the light and small sprinkler irrigation system in China.
