The purpose of the present study is to investigate the global performance and three dimensional flow fields in a water-jet pump. TASCflow software is employed to simulate the rotator-stator coupling flow field. A standard k-ε turbulence model combined with standard wall functions is used. In order to investigate the effect of a rear stator on flow fields, the flows in two water-jet pumps with and without a rear stator are studied. The CFD predicted global performances are in good agreement with the experimental results. Then the flow fields, such as the pressure distribution on the blade surfaces, the axial and tangential velocities distribution, especially the radial loading distribution are investigated at different flow rates. In addition, the effect of a rear stator and different spacing between the rotor and the stator on the global performance and the flow fields of the water-jet pump are also investigated.
