Computational Investigation of Suction in Taylor-Couette Pump

In the present paper, numerical simulation of a couette pump is performed to study the flow visualization and suction rate for different rotor configurations. Taylor vortices can be formed by subjecting a liquid to a shear stress within an annular space between a rotating cylinder (with blades or without blades) and a stationary bottom surface. The results are substantiated by FLUENT simulations for better understanding on the flow pattern of the fluid. The suction rate is higher in case of cylindrical rotor without blades.

Keywords: Taylor-Couette, Couette pump, rotor blades, Turbulence, CFD
