Test, validate, and iterate designs more easily than ever before in a cloud-based platform
A pump impeller, or simply an impeller, is a rotating component of a pump device. This rotor transfers energy from the motor that moves and accelerates the fluid outwards from the center of rotation..
Pump impellers can be applied in a variety of scenarios, and exist as 3 main types that are then used in turbomachinery systems:
A pump impeller needs to be simulated and evaluated early in the design process to determine the optimal design. However, the high cost of hardware and steep learning curves of traditional, on-premises tools leave many designers to feel that simulation is not an option.
SimScale has eliminated such barriers , thanks to the power of the cloud. With SimScale, engineers can:
In this project, different pump impeller designs are simulated and their performance evaluated. The parameters of interest like the pressure head, hydraulic efficiency are calculated and validated.
This project simulates a centrifugal water pump using the Multiple Reference Frame Model (MRF) approach. This evaluation explains the importance of simulating your design, as the performance of any pump depends on a series of factors.
This project showcases SimScale’s capabilities to optimize the design of pumps and their various applications. The physics and features that are essential to these pumps are highlighted followed by a demonstration of a typical pump design using CFD simulation.
