    • Schiavello, Bruno; Smith, Donald R.; Price, Stephen M. (Texas A&M University. Turbomachinery Laboratories, 2004)
      It is well documented that the proper operation of vertical centrifugal pumps is greatly dependent upon the entire pump/piping system, which includes the piping geometry and the system operating conditions. Oftentimes, ...
    • Schiavello, Bruno (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1992)
    • Schiavello, Bruno (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Texas A&M University, 1993)
      High reliability and large rangeability are required of pumps in existing and new plants which must be capable of reliable on-off cycling operations and especially low load duties. The reliability and rangeability target ...
    • Schiavello, Bruno; Visser, Frank; Green, Patrick; Henry, David; Atkins, Ken; Cicatello, Giancarlo; Annese, Francesco; Curtin, Greg; Adams, Ron (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Unexpected cavitation erosion Key parameters to consider for Root Cause Analysis when experiencing cavitation damage NPSHR, NPSHA, NPSH margin Performance loss due to insufficient NPSHA (margin) NPSH 40,000 hours ...
    • Schiavello, Bruno; Yoo, Jihoon (Turbomachinery Laboratory, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2018)
      Suggested Topics: • Seal plan which was not expected – wrong for the application • Preventive/predictive technologies Off design operation • Mean time between failure – how do we measure, and how do we use the metrics • ...
    • Cicatelli, Giancarlo; Schiavello, Bruno (Turbomachinery Laboratories, Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, 2016)
      Case Study 16: In the modern pump industry, processed fluids are characterized by a wide spectrum of viscosity values. An unpredicted variation of actual process fluid properties, including viscosity, may lead to unexpected ...
