The objective of this book is to provide a brief, but thorough account of the basic principles of good pump design. The author begins with a review of basic hydraulic relations. This section also includes a chapter on analytical methods and computer aided design, which is becoming increasingly common. This is followed by a description of two simple pump designs, the centrifugal pump and the axial flow pump. Next, support devices, such as shafts, bearings, seals and drives are discussed. The last two chapters deal with design for difficult fluids, and codes and practices.
