Abstract

An application of contra-rotating rotors, in which a rear rotor is employed in tandem with a front one and these rotors rotate in the opposite direction each other, has been proposed against a demand for developing higher specific speed axial flow pump. The internal flow field of pump should be considered in the design for higher performance and more stable operation. The flow field in contra-rotating axial flow pump was measured with LDV and wall pressure measurements. In the present paper, the experimental results are shown and the flow behaviors would be discussed.
