Air-water two-phase flow experimental and numerical analysis in a low specific speed centrifugal pump
TypeCommunications avec actes
The paper presents experimental and numerical investigations performed on a single stage, single-suction, horizontal-orientated centrifugal pump in air-water two-phase non condensable flow conditions. Experimental test loop allows performing controlled values of air void fraction for different water flow rates for a several rotational speeds. Global pump heads and efficiencies are obtained for several inlet air void fraction values at different rotating speeds up to pump performance breakdown. Similarity laws under two-phase flow condition are investigated at three selected rotating speeds. Numerical calculations are also performed using URANS approach including k-e turbulence and inhomogeneous two-phase models for nominal rotational speed, the results of which are used to understand some specific experimental results.

Experimental Investigations on the Inner Flow Behavior of Centrifugal Pumps under Inlet Air-Water Two-Phase Conditions SI, Qiaorui; ZHANG, Haoyang; BOIS, Gérard; ZHANG, Jinfeng; CUI, Qianglei; YUAN, Shouqi (MDPI AG, 2019)Centrifugal pumps are widely used and are known to be sensitive to inlet air-water two-phase flow conditions. The pump performance degradation mainly depends on the changes in the two-phase flow behavior inside the pump. ...
