Meeting the Pump Users Needs is a documentation of the 12th International Pump Technical Conference. Pump makers have always understood that their equipment provides an essential service to the pump users. Pumps have been designed and built to satisfy the needs of the user. The main thrust of this book is to share between users, specifiers, and makers their knowledge and experiences leading to better understanding of what the user needs now and would like for the future, and what the designer/maker can provide now and may be able to offer for the future. This book also describes an unusual method of calculating a head generated across a multistage pump when the impeller diameters are changed. The method leads to significantly larger calculated changes of head than predicted from the conventional affinity law approach. This text is a useful reference and source of information for engineering students and those conducting research on pump manufacturing.
