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.

Hydrodynamics of Pumps is a reference text for pump experts and students exploring pumps and pump design. This book covers the fluid dynamics of liquid turbomachines, particularly pumps. It focuses on special problems and design issues associated with the flow of liquid through a rotating machine. It is richly illustrated and includes many practical examples.About the Author:
