Flow analysis was carried out for a double-suction centrifugal pump. An impeller-only model and a full pump model were used to simulate the velocity and the pressure field of the pump. Pump head and efficiency were calculated with flow rate in order to obtain general performance of the pump. The calculation results were compared to the experimental data, and satisfactory results were obtained. Also, the velocity and the pressure field of this pump were analyzed for the rated point and off-design points. Changes of the velocity and the pressure field with flow rate were investigated at impeller eye and impeller exit.
