There are a number of complex equations in this book that deal with water pump engineering. Although not difficult to work with pen and paper, they can be time-consuming. Engineers use pumps to deliver a liquid or a gas to a specific place at a required rate. Liquids and gases are known as fluids. A pump is used to change the elevation, velocity, or pressure of a fluid. In nature, a fluid will flow naturally from a high place to a low place (like a waterfall) or from a high pressure to a low pressure (from inside a balloon to the outside air). Its velocity is often a function of geometry (its shape) and the conditions around it. When a fluid is needed uphill from a source like a lake or pond, at higher pressure than a source, or at a higher rate, an engineer will consider a pump to accomplish the task. This lesson in this book will be broken into sections including basic terms, fluid statics, flow rates, the Bernoulli equation, and a form of the energy equation for pumps. As the book progresses, it will move from basic definitions and terms to finding the power of an idealized pump. This reference book focuses on design, operations and maintenance of pumps. It is intended that the book will be a useful resource to the students and researchers of pumps engineering.
