Abstract
Abstract: A wortex-pump is simulated numerically using CFX-TASCFlow flow solver. The grid for the simulations is provided by the manufacturer, Grundfos A/S. The k-ε turbulence model with wall functions were utilized in the simulations. Main result: Pump head, efficiency and shaft power are obtained from the simulated flow-field. Observations are made from the graphical visualizations. The figures are shown in the Appendix of this report and are also available on a CD.
