Problems of Mechanics in Pump and Compressor Engineering
Collection of selected, peer reviewed papers from the ХІV International Scientific and Engineering Conference on Hermetic Sealing, Vibration Reliability and Ecological Safety of Pump and Compressor Machinery (HERVICON+PUMPS 2014), September 9-12, 2014, Sumy, Ukraine. The 52 papers are grouped as follows:
Chapter 1: Flowing Parts Hydromechanics, New Designs, Energy and Resource Saving of Pumps and Compressors,
Chapter 2: Bearings and Seals,
Chapter 3: Strength, Mechanical Vibrations and Reliability, Materials and Technology
Keyword: flowing parts, Hydromechanics, pump compressor, bearing seal, strenght, mechanical vibration, materials techology
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The conference addresses various technical problems involved in creating new designs and modernizing existing designs of pumps and compressors, predominantly centrifugal machines. The 53 papers discuss such matters as modeling operating modes of centrifugal pumps, replaceable hydraulic parts in spiral volute pumps, solutions for increasing the bearing capacity of thrust bearings, the lubrication regimes of mechanical face seals, elastic bellows prepared by selective laser sintering, and damping self-excited pressure pulsations in a petro-diesel pipeline.
