Measurements for the rotordynamic shroud forces for centrifugal pumps


An experiment was designed to measure the rotordynamic shroud forces on a centrigual pump impeller. The measurements were doen for various whirl/impeller ratios and for different flow rates. A destabilising tangential force was measured for small positive whirl ratios and this force decreased with increasing flow rate.
