In this paper, the orthogonal test is used to optimize the structural parameters of the centrifugal pump; combined with CFD numerical simulation, the influence of the main structural parameters of the impeller on the pump head, efficiency, shaft power, and [NPSH.sub.r] is studied, and the optimal combination of parameters is calculated by weight matrix, in order to improve the hydraulic performance of the centrifugal pump.
Studies agree in considering the fluid-structure interaction (FSI) as the source of the highest vibration levels in large centrifugal pumps. Moreover, hydraulic excitation forces are due to the FSI and cause pressure fluctuations, mechanical vibrations, and alternating stresses in different components of centrifugal pump.
