Abstract

The pressure distribution along the shroud is measured for three types of centrifugal impeller at seven different values of tip clearance each. The change of input power due to a change of tip clearance is related to the effective blockage at the impeller tip. Since the change of input power is little for the test cases, the variation of local pressure gradient along the shroud is mostly attributed to the change of local pressure loss.
