Lecture 19: Pump Testing

Learning Objectives

  • Be able to finish assembly of the pump
  • Be able to perform basic trouble-shooting to verify operation of the pump
  • Be able to describe the shape of head versus flow rate curve for a pump
  • Be able to describe the shape of the efficiency versus flow rate curve for a pump
  • Be able to identify the no-flow and maximum flow points on head versus flow rate and efficiency versus flow rate curves
  • Be able to perform the measurements necessary to measure pump performance: measure flow rate, head, power input
  • Be able to reduce the raw data from pump performance measurements to obtain head versus flow rate and efficiency versus flow rate curves.
  • Be able to complete the measurements necessary to measure pump performance: measure flow rate, head, power input
  • Be able to make a polynomial curve fit to the head versus flow rate and efficiency versus flow rate curves

Lecture Slides and Notes

  • Pump performance theory: pdf

Homework

The final report on your pump depends on your section. Consult your D2L page.

Supplement notes and videos

  • Short video on modern manufacturing techniques used to make a phone dock in Portland Oregon
  • much longer video (27 minutes) showing many CNC and other milling operations.
