Subject Keywords Jet pumps
Abstract: The peripheral jet pump is examined in both theoretical and in practical applications. One-dimensional, force-momentum theory is applied in a jet pump setting for incompressible fluids. Results from a laboratory model are used for applications design. The scope of practical applications examined include: 1) use as a fish pump, 2) as part of a crab-sampling device, 3) feasibility as a ship's bow thruster. The laboratory tests revealed the inadequacy of the current theory for wide jet spray patterns. The benefit of wide jets on suction and non-benefit on lift performance were established. Other performance aiding factors such partial submergence, partial blockage, and having the jets located at the suction inlet are studied for one phase, two phase and three phase pumping. Also, as a complement to the written theory, computer programs which model the theoretical performance of peripheral jet pumps are available on 5.25" floppy disks. The programs are written for use on IBM PC and compatible computers. *IBM is a registered trademark of International Business Machines.
