Abstract:

An investigation of maximum efficiencies of low specific speed turbopumps obtainable with the present state of the art is covered. Optimum suction specific speed and optimum efficiency are analyzed and a theoretical method of determining the detailed design criteria for each optimum design performed. Experimental evidence was accumulated to substantiate the analysis and the final design parameters are presented as functions of pump specific speed and specific diameter.
