Automatic Optimization of Waste Water Pumps by 3D Inverse Design Method

Video available on-demand

The demand to reduce the amount of waste water is having considerable impact on design of waste water pumps as the solid content is increased in proportion to amount of water present. At the same time these pumps are required to have high efficiency. So the design of waste water pumps need to meet the contrasting requirements in terms of non-clogging performance, efficiency and sometime even cavitation performance.

In this webinar we present a new methodology for design of non-clogging pumps based on coupling 3D inverse design method with an automatic optimizer. The proposed methodology uses the computational speed of 3D inverse design method and the resulting geometrical and flow parameters to create a system for rapid and automatic exploration of the design space so that the contrasting requirements in terms of non-clogging, efficiency and cavitation performance can be met within 1 hour time scale computationally on a single core.

The process is demonstrated for an actual case with a requirement for 3 inch non-clogging performance. The key geometrical parameters used to ensure non-clogging performance of the design are explained. The performance of the resulting impeller is then assessed for efficiency and cavitation performance.

Who is it for?

The event addresses all engineers, developers or researchers dealing with turbomachinery design.
The method is interesting for small and medium companies as well as enterprises.

What awaits you?

The design of waste water pumps requires complicated trade-off between non-clogging characteristic of the impeller with its efficiency and cavitation performance. In this webinar, we will show an automated process for optimizing the design of waste water pumps by using 3D inverse design method. We demonstrate how the new methodology can considerably speed up the design optimization of waste water pumps, allowing designers to rapidly develop high performance designs that meet a given non-clogging requirement.
