The pumps, icluding centrifugal type pumps, are widely presented in ship hull systems. It means that every professional desling with the design of pumps has to have very good theoretical knowledge and fully understand how they work. But that is not enough, and they should be familiar with the practical application of pumps and engineering correlations for flow phenomena. This book is intended to be of use to pump designers as well as crew members dealing with the day-to-day operation and maintenance of pumps. The chapters of this publication cover such interesting and important topics as various pump types and their performance data, fluid dynamic principles, physical concepts and pump hydraulics, various performance characteristics, partload operation, cavitation and suction capability, design of the various hydraulic components, vibration and noise, hydraulic forces, pump operation, general characteristics of turbine operation, selection of materials exposed to high flow velocities, influence of the medium, pump selection and quality considerations, and pump testing.
