Newtonian Fluids, Olive Oil and CFD


Centrifugal pumps are used to transport fluids by the conversion of rotational kinetic energy to the hydrodynamic energy of the fluid flow. The rotational energy commonly originates from a motor or electric engine. The liquid enters the direct impeller along or close to the pivoting hub and is quickened by the impeller, streaming radically outward into a diffuser or volute chamber (packaging), from where it exits. Basic uses incorporate water, sewage, oil and petrochemical pumping; an outward fan is normally used to actualize a vacuum cleaner. The capacity of the outward pump is a water turbine changing over potential energy of water weight into mechanical rotational energy. The purpose of this paper is to identify /observe and determine the pattern of velocity profile and pressure distribution by using CFD solid works simulation module by using non Newtonian fluids, such as olive oil, and slurry after the 3D design and modeling of the pump is made using solid works 2016 software. Basically, this paper revolves around the idea of investigating the effect and distribution of velocity profile and pressure within a pump by using water and non-Newtonian fluids.
