The Effects of Volute Design Parameters on the Performance of a Centrifugal Pump

In this study, a centrifugal pump impeller and volute were designed, taking a commercially available product as a reference.

After verifying the reference design with the CFD method, simulations continued on the volute by modifying volute design parameters. The performance of the volute geometry was examined by changing the cross-section to be circular, left-leaning asymmetric, right-leaning asymmetric, and trapezoidal.
