Abstract

Test data have been obtained on three commercially available water pumps adapted for use with cryogenic fluids. Much of this information is reported in a National Bureau of Standards Report.1 Since this report was issued some new data have been obtained on the water pumps, and some preliminary tests have been made on a single stage aircraft fuel booster pump. The purpose here is to discuss some of the test work completed to date and indicate the problems involved.
