Hydrodynamics of Pumps
by Christopher E. Brennen
Publisher: Concepts ETI 1994
Number of pages: 293
The subject of this monograph is the fluid dynamics of liquid turbomachines, particularly pumps. Rather than attempt a general treatise on turbomachines, we shall focus attention on those special problems and design issues associated with the flow of liquid through a rotating machine. There are two characteristics of a liquid that lead to these special problems, and cause a significantly different set of concerns than would occur in, say, a gas turbine. These are the potential for cavitation and the high density of liquids that enhances the possibility of damaging unsteady flows and forces.

A treatment of the fundamental physical processes involved in bubble dynamics and cavitation. It is applicable to topics ranging from valve damage in hydroelectric equipment, ship propellers, and internal combustion engines to the turbines and pumps.

A First Course in Fluid Mechanics covers the basics of the engineering fluid mechanics without delving into deeper more mathematical concepts. Building from the most basic concepts, it covers the topics in fluid statics and dynamics.

The author demonstrates a stable Lagrangian solid modeling method, tracking the interactions of solid mass particles, rather than using a meshed grid. This method avoids the problem of tensile instability seen with Smooth Particle Applied Mechanics.
