Fluid pressure is the pressure at a point within a fluid arising due to the weight of the fluid.
Suction specific speed is an index number for a centrifugal pump similar to discharge specific speed and is used to define its suction characteristic. It is constant for a given pump, regardless of pump speed
A centrifugal pump converts input power to kinetic energy by accelerating liquid in a revolving device - an impeller.
The job of the turbine is to extract energy from the heated flow exiting the burner
The Zweifel loading coefficient (Zw) is defined as a ratio of an actual tangential loading (but expressed in a force) to an ideal one in the blade cascade
