Water Pump General Information (tutorial: pump-full-snappy)
In the following tutorial, there will be shown the methodology of simulating and evaluating radial (centrifugal) water pump using Turbomachinery CFD. The computational geometry of the pump case is depicted in Figure (). In this particular case the whole wheel is computed, nevertheless the single blade periodic case is possible. In the periodic case the approach would be exactly the same.
The pump tutorial test case workflow is automated. The effective simulations are run just using three scripts, one by one:
# bash createMesh.sh
# bash Allrun.sh &
# bash evalEff.sh
#!/bin/sh bash createMesh.sh bash Allrun.sh bash evalEff.sh
