  • Design and numerical characterization of a first stage of a high capacity multistage centrifugal pump
    2016 6th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies Technologies and Applications (SIMULTECH), 2016
    Co-Authors: Nicolas La Roche-carrier, Guyh Dituba Ngoma, Walid Ghie

    Abstract:

    In this paper, a numerical characterization of a first stage of a high capacity multistage centrifugal pump was performed for very high flow rates. A particular emphasis was placed on the diffuser design procedure. For this purpose, the equations of the continuity and the Navier-Stokes accounting for the boundary conditions were used by mean of ANSYS-CFX code to describe and to simulate the complex liquid flow in the multistage centrifugal pump. In order to identify the key parameters of the diffuser that can improve the pump stage performances, the effects of the inlet height of the diffuser vanes, the number of the diffuser vanes, the number of the diffuser return vanes, and the gap between the impeller and the diffuser on the pump stage head, Brake Horsepower and efficiency were analyzed. The validation of the developed model of a first pump stage was done comparing results of numerical simulations and experimental results obtained from a pump manufacturer.

  • SIMULTECH – Numerical investigation of liquid flow in two-, three- and four-stage centrifugal pumps
    Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies Technologies and Applications, 2014
    Co-Authors: Nicolas La Roche-carrier, Guyh Dituba Ngoma, Walid Ghie

    Abstract:

    In this study, a liquid flow in two-, three- and four-stage centrifugal pumps was numerical investigated. The continuity and Navier-Stokes equations with the k-e turbulence model and standard wall functions were used by means of the ANSYS-CFX code. To enhance the design of the multistage pump, the impacts of the number of impeller blades, diffuser return vanes and the number of stages on the performances of a multistage centrifugal pump were analyzed. The results obtained demonstrate that the selected parameters affect the pump head, Brake Horsepower and efficiency in a strong yet different manner. To validate the model developed, the results of the numerical simulations were compared with the experimental results from the pump manufacturer.

  • does driving behavior matter an analysis of fuel consumption data from heavy duty trucks
    Transportation Research Part D-transport and Environment, 2015
    Co-Authors: Hans Jakob Walnum, Morten Simonsen

    Abstract:

    In a case study of a Norwegian heavy-duty truck transport company, we analyzed data generated by the online fleet management system Dynafleet. The objective was to find out what influenced fuel consumption. We used a set of driving indicators as explanatory variables: load weight, trailer type, route, Brake Horsepower, average speed, automatic gearshift use, cruise-control use, use of more than 90% of maximum torque, a dummy variable for seasonal variation, use of running idle, use of driving in highest gear, Brake applications, number of stops and rolling without engine load. We found, via multivariate regression analysis and corresponding mean elasticity analysis, that with driving on narrow mountainous roads, variables associated with infrastructure and vehicle properties have a larger influence than driver-influenced variables do. However, we found that even under these challenging infrastructure conditions, driving behavior matters. Our findings and analysis could help transport companies decide how to use fleet management data to reduce fuel consumption by choosing the right vehicle for each transportation task and identifying environmentally and economically benign ways of driving.

  • Application of network-based virtual instrument technology on remote vehicle inspection
    2005 International Conference on Machine Learning and Cybernetics, 2005
    Co-Authors: Yong He, Guang-lin Tian

    Abstract:

    This paper presents the development of a module of network-based virtual instrument technology which is used for inspecting the performance of vehicles. G Web server provided by NI Corporation helped issue the vehicle inspection panel on the Web. Meanwhile, DataSocket technique helped transfer data through Internet. LabVIEW and Web technology were combined to realize the remote control of vehicle inspection to meet the needs of clients. The system has been proved to be quite effective in the examination of vehicle performances, such as Brake Horsepower, speed, noises, lamplight, smoke intensity and the weight of every axle.
