LINEAR STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS ON CENTRIFUGAL PUMP
The problem commonly encountered in a centrifugal pump are excessive heat, excessive noise, leakage and damage of its components . Major reasons for the failure of a pump are excessive stress, reduction in strength of its components, variation in load, poor design and what is the material used in manufacturing of parts of the pump. Failure of a component affects the performance of a pump, causing either a reduction in its efficiency or its complete breakdown . The major objective of this paper is the analysis of components of pump by FEA through ANSYS 14.0.
