Abstract

Pump designers have for many years experienced the phenomena of a difference in the cavitation performance of a single pump handling different fluids. From a data correlation view point the mixed fluids such as jet fuels and water with entrained air present the most difficult problem. However, the single fluids such as water at different temperatures, liquid oxygen, and liquid nitrogen also exhibit different characteristics.
