PUMPS MAJOR DESIGN STEPS

1. Main dimensions
Computation of the impeller main dimensions:
hub diameter, suction diameter, impeller diameter,
outlet width
Use of built-in or user-defined approximation
functions for determination of pump parameters

2. Meridional contour
Design of meridional contour by
Bezier-splines, arcs and lines or user-
defined polylines
Positioning of straight or curved
leading edge
Display information pertaining to
important geometrical parameters
Computation of the meridional flow by
a simple streamline curvature method;
display of velocity distributions

3. Blade angles
Selecting blade shape: Free form 3D, General 2D,
Circular 2D, Straight 2D, Ruled surface blades,
Radial element blades
Blade design on 2 to 11 meridional flow sections
Computation of optimal blade angles considering the
contraction of the flow channel and the slip factor
Display velocity triangles and tabular listing of velocity
components and flow angles
