In this study, unsteady flow field of an industrial double-suction centrifugal pump has been solved to obtain the interaction between impeller and volute casing. Quasi-steady and unsteady methods have been used. A block-structured grid is employed to represent the complicated pump geometry. The velocity field and the pressure fields of the pump are analyzed for the rated point and off-design points. Magnitude of the interaction is evaluated numerically.
