    • Cooling Water Pump Station Optimization Using CFD and Physical Model Test 

      Annese, Francesco; Ficele, Letizia; Lisanti, Emanuele (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      In this paper, a combined study between Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and a model test has been carried on a Cooling Water Pumping Station as part of a new power plant. The aim of this work was to validate a water pit ...

    • PL05 - A FEM APPROACH TO PREDICT ACOUSTIC RESONANCE IN MULTISTAGE CENTRIFUGAL PUMP 

      Bruno, Simonne; Annese, Francesco; Brizzi, Rita (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment StationTexas A & M University. Libraries, [2019])
      Acoustic resonance that can develop within the hydraulic channels of the pump, especially in the long crossover channel of a multistage, has always had in the past a minimal consideration if compared with other dynamic ...
