    • 25 Years Of Driving Pump Technology: The Contribution Of The Pump Symposium 

      Cooper, Paul (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2009)
    • A Vision For Pump R&D Over The Next 25 Years 

      Cooper, Paul (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2009)
      Energizing research and development on pumps in today’s emerging global and environmental context is envisioned as a major feature of the pump industry in the next quarter century. The mission for how to realize this vision ...
    • Computational Fluid Dynamical Analysis Of Complex Internal Flows In Centrifugal Pumps 

      Cooper, Paul; Graf, Edward; Luce, Timothy (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1994)
      A commercial computational fluid dynamics (CFD) computer code was employed to compute the flow field from 105 percent down to 21 percent of the 4525 gpm BEP flowrate of a 1785 rpm, 1500 specific speed impeller of 14,000 ...
    • Control Of Backflow At The Inlets Of Centrifugal Pumps And Inducers 

      Sloteman, Donald P.; Cooper, Paul; Dussord, Jules L. (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1984)
      Cavitation surge or the interaction of backflow from the inlet of a centrifugal pump or inducer at low flow and low NPSH can be eliminated by the use of backflow recirculator. Experimental results from four pumps demonstrate ...
    • Elimination Of Cavitation-Related Instabilities And Damage In High-Energy Pump Impellers 

      Cooper, Paul; Sloteman, Donald P.; Graf, Edward; Vlaming, Dirk J. (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1991)
      The suction-stage impeller of a large crude oil pipeline pump was designed by combining quasi-three dimensional flow analysis with current theories to generate an impeller geometry, which was evaluated in a half-size model ...
    • Enhanced Multiphase Flow Predictions In Twin-Screw Pumps 

      Prang, Allan J.; Cooper, Paul (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2004)
      In oil field applications it is often required to pump oil, gas, and water as mixtures rather than separating the fluid. Although the performance prediction of twin-screw pumps on liquids is well established, the prediction ...
    • Experimental Study Of The Influence Of Backflow Control On Pump Hydraulic-Mechanical Interaction 

      Kesztejna, Paul J.; Heald, Charles C.; Cooper, Paul (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1985)
      A series of right-angle pump intakes, incorporating minimum axial depths and decelerating flows, has been experimentally evaluated using an air flow test procedure. Performance was measured, internal flow fields observed ...
    • MPP Short Course Key Features of Topside and Subsea MultiPhase 

      Cooper, Paul; Bibet, Pierre-Jean (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      This short course targets Rotating Equipment engineers, Process engineers, and Project engineers interested in gaining a better understanding of the unique characteristics of Multiphase Pumps. The agenda is built to go ...
    • MPP Short Course: Key Features of Topside and Subsea Multiphase Pumps 

      Bibet, Pierre-Jean; Cooper, Paul; Moore, Mike; Heyl, Bob (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2015)
      This short course targets Rotating Equipment engineers, Process engineers, and Project engineers interested in gaining a better understanding of the unique characteristics of Multiphase Pumps. The agenda is built to go ...
    • Multiphase Gas-Liquid Pumping 

      Cooper, Paul; Schiavello, Bruno; Salis, Jacques de; Marolles, Charles D.; Prang, Allan J.; Broussard, Dan (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 1996)
      Pumping crude oil and gas without prior separation greatly reduces the machinery and platform space required. Multiphase pumps can be located at the surface or subsea and are designed primarily as a) two-screw rotary or ...
    • Pumps - 2000 And Beyond 

      Cooper, Paul (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2001)
    • Visual Studies Of Cavitation In Pumping Machinery 

      Palgrave, Ronald; Cooper, Paul (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1986)
      The visual study of cavitation in pumping machinery now plays an important role in its development-particularly where high stage energies are concerned. The incomplete picture provided by traditional head decay tests is ...
