Abstract

The paper illustrates the upgrades recently introduced in Alta’s Cavitating Pump Rotordynamic Test Facility in order to extend its experimental capabilities, with special reference to the addition of an auxiliary pump for testing of turbopump inducers over a wider range of flow coefficients, and the set-up of an original apparatus specifically designed for the characterization of the dynamic transfer matrices of cavitating inducers and turbopumps. Examples are presented of the improved capabilities of the facility.
