Paper Title:
Examine Applicability of the RANS and LES Method on Numerical Simulation of Centrifugal Pump
  Abstract

In order to examine applicability of the Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS)using Reynolds Stress equation Model (RSM) and the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) in numerical simulation of centrifugal pump, a series of 3D numerical simulation at the design point and at six off-design points were carried out with the two methods. The object is based on IS80-65-160 centrifugal pump. According to the results obtained, head, shaft power, efficiency of pump were calculated, the simulated performance curves of a centrifugal pump is processed. The simulated performance curves of a centrifugal pump were compared with the experimental performance curves. It was confirmed that RANS were suitable for the numerical simulation of the internal flow inside a centrifugal pump. But the result of LES is not very good if the same gambit which is suitable for RANS was used. Therefore, the computer resources, not propose the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) method in numerical simulations of centrifugal pump.
