The main objective of this work is to use the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique in analysing and predicting the performance of a radial flow-type impeller of centrifugal pump. The impeller analyzed is at the following design condition: flow rate of 0.28274 m3/sec; speed of 1200 rpm; and head of 75 m; inlet velocity of 3 m/sec in US-Units. The first stage involves the blade generation of the radial impeller. The second stage deals with the design modeling of the blade geometry in design modeller. Third stage, meshing of the impeller in mesh-equipped module.In the final stage, various results are calculated and analyzed for factors affecting impeller performance. ANSYS BladeGen, ANSYS Mesh and ANSYS CFD (Fluent) modules are used for geometric modelling, meshing and solution respectively.
