Pump characteristics and applications, 2d ed. (CD-ROM included)
Taylor & Francis
Mechanical engineering; v.189
In this second edition of a book/CD-ROM reference for engineers, maintenance technicians, and plant operators, Volk, a consultant in pump systems, adds material on recent innovations, and expands material on components that were covered only briefly in the first edition. There is new material on software for the design and analysis of pump piping systems, along with a new CD-ROM demonstrating one such software tool. Other new and expanded topics covered include positive displacement pumps, NPSH analysis for closed systems, electric motors, metallic corrosion, and prevention of low flow damage in pumps.
