What is it about?
The objective of this present work is to study the performance characteristics of a centrifugal slurry pump, handling water at different operating speeds using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code FLUENT. Three-dimensional numerical simulation is carried out to investigate the flow field inside the pump passage at 'design' and 'off-design' conditions.
Why is it important?
This paper has a limitation that water as a standard fluid has been used as a working fluid instead of direct slurry as it is easy to simulate through CFD. It is rare to see literature regarding statistical comparison of various existing simulating models for slurry pumps at different rpm ranges.
