This unique text focuses on special problems and design issues associated with pumps: the potential for cavitation, the damage and vibration problems which result from cavitation, and the possibility of large unsteady flows and forces on the machine. The book provides a coherent and unified treatment of the hydrodynamics of pumps with an emphasis on the underlying physical phenomena. An important reference text for engineers and scientists, it is also appropriate for graduate courses in turbomachinery.
