This paper describes the numerical investigation of the centrifugal impeller response to downstream static pressure distortions imposed by volutes at off-design operations. An unsteady 3D Euler solver with non-reflecting upstream and downstream boundary conditions and phase-lagged periodicity conditions is used for this purpose.

The mechanisms governing the unsteady flow field are analysed. A parametric study shows the influence of the acoustic Strouhal number on the amplitude of the flow perturbations. Radial forces calculated on backward leaned and radial ending centrifugal impellers, show non-negligible influence of the impeller geometry.
