The geometry of the centrifugal pump impeller was created in FreeCAD and the model was meshed with 54k cells in Salome. The geometry had 5 number of blades and to keep the simulation simple, cyclic boundary conditions were applied on two faces. Simulation was performed in Ansys CFX. Solution was converged and the results were analyzed in Ansys CFD-Post. The parameters such as Head and Shaft power from the CFD-Post were calculated and then compared with the empirical results.
Thanks to Evgeniy Ivanov for the software to calculate the dimensions and empirical pump performance prediction.
