This book is intended as a combination of a reference for pump experts, and as a monograph for advanced students interested in some of the basic problems associated with the hydrodynamics of pumps. Chapters are devoted to basic principles, to two-dimensional performance analysis, to flow features, to cavitation parameters and inception, to bubble dynamics, damage and noise, to cavitation and pump performance, to pump vibration, to unsteady flow in hydraulic systems, and to radial and rotordynamic forces.
