Pump and Pumping System

Call for Papers

Pump has covered a wide range of applications in modern industries, as well as its most complicated classification and varied forms of structures. Recent advances of pump have witnessed a leap-forward development toward the most complicated aspects of mechanical engineering. Knowledge and understanding of modern pump have developed new fields for modern pump design, novel structural concept, and improvement of classical forms.

We would like to invite investigators both in academic and industrial fields to contribute to their original research papers as well as reviews to this special issue. We especially welcome original contributions to the understanding of pumps and pumping systems, that is, underlying knowledge of fundamental flow phenomena of pumps, novel methodology, and techniques that apply for design and optimization of pumps and modern measurement techniques. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Modern pump design
  • PIV measurements of flow phenomena within pumps
  • Optimization of pumps and pumping systems
  • Flow-structural interactions involved in pumps
  • Rotor dynamics and pump failure
  • Cavitation
  • Flow-induced noise
  • Transient flow at startup and shutdown
  • Thermodynamics and heat transfer in pump and pumping system
  • Gas-liquid, solid-liquid multiphase flow within pumps

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Authors Guidelines, which are located at http:///www.hindawi.com/journals/ame/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ame/pump/ according to the following timetable:
