INTRODUCTIONA pump is a machinery or device for raising, compressingor transferring fluid. A fluid can be gasses or any liquid.Pumps are one of the most often sold and used mechanicaldevices and can be found in almost every industry. Pumpsalone do not create pressure; they only displace fluid,causing a flow. Adding resistance to flow causes pressure.Pumps fall into five major groups: direct lift, velocity,buoyancy and gravity pumps.A centrifugal pump is a kinetic device. Liquid entering thepump receives kinetic energy from the rotating impeller.The centrifugal action of the impeller accelerates the liquidto a high velocity, transferring mechanical (rotational)energy to the liquid. That kinetic energy is available to thefluid to accomplish work. The centrifugal pumps act as areversed of an inward radial flow reaction turbine.Centrifugal pumps consist of a set of rotating vanes,enclosed within a housing or casing, used to impart energyto a fluid through centrifugal force.IJERTV3IS0711984.

EFD, CFD, and UA laboratories. EFD labs were improved and UA was introduced. Complementary CFD labs were also introduced using an advanced research code modified for limited user options. From 1999 to 2002, the research CFD code was replaced by the commercial CFD software (FLUENT) and refinements were made and
