IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Influence of nozzle exit cross section shape on performance of jet pump
Author : Long Xinping, Han Ning
Nozzle is an important part of jet pump. To approach the influence of different nozzles on the performance of jet pump, four kinds of nozzles are chosen, such as cross, ellipse with a 2:1 aspect ratio, ellipse with a 3:1 aspect ratio and square. The three-dimensional flow field within a jet pump was investigated numerically based on standard k −ε turbulent model and finite volume method. The performance curve of jet pump with the cross nozzle showed that 3-D simulation results agreed well with experimental data and theoretical value. In farther research, that different nozzles have variant influence on the performance of jet pump is proved. An elliptic nozzle with a 2:1 aspect ratio and a foursquare nozzle can enhance the performance than a circular nozzle, and among them, the foursquare one is the best one. An elliptic nozzle with a 2:1 aspect ratio does better than the circular one when mass flowrate is lower than 1.2-1.4, and does worse when mass flowrate is greater than 1.2-1.4.
