`It is an extremely well-presented book which no pump expert or serious student of the subject should be without.' Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 60, No. 7, July 1995
For all those involved in research and development on pump design and use, and students taking courses on turbomachinery, this book points the way to design, test, and run pumps and systems that are more effective, more economical, and more reliable. It provides a survey of basic principles of fluid mechanical design for incompressible fluids, followed by a comprehensive treatise on cavitation and unsteady flow and vibration in pumps.
From the Publisher
This unique text focuses on those 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.
