Numerical Investigation of the Characteristics of Erosion in a Centrifugal Pump for Transporting Dilute Particle-Laden Flows

Erosion in centrifugal pumps for transporting flows with dilute particles is a main pump failure problem in many engineering processes. A numerical model combining the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and Discrete Element Method (DEM) is applied to simulate erosion in a centrifugal pump. Different...
