Performance and analysis of newly designed pump seating for centrifugal pump operation / Nabilah Hamidan

Hamidan, Nabilah (2017) Performance and analysis of newly designed pump seating for centrifugal pump operation / Nabilah Hamidan. [Student Project] (Submitted)


The main purpose of pump seating is to place the pump while maintaining the function of the pump. This study is concerned with the development of an efficient method for the analysis of performance pump seating. The objectives are to developed a reliable finite element model of pump seating under static and vibration loadings and to analyze the performance and behavior of the design under static and vibration loading for pump weighted 235 kg. The result can be obtained by analyse it using two methods which are analytical calculations and finite element method (FEM). This project is done by using finite element analysis which is Abaqus software. The model is designed according to the industries that are related with the pump seating in work. The model is designed in 3D cad software modelling which is Solidworks. Subsequently, the model is imported into Abaqus software for finite element analysis (FEA). The performance of the pump seating under various loading can be analyze by simulate the model using Abaqus software. The reliability of the finite element model is analyzed by comparing the analytical/theoretical calculations obtained with the simulation using Abaqus software. The analytical/theoretical calculations correlated well with simulation analysis results where both proved that the design of pump seating can hold the pump in static and vibration loading
