Unformatted text preview: assumes the efficiency = 1. The rate of work done on a turbomachine is referred to by several terms which mean the same thing. When working with pumps, we usually call the shaft power the brake horsepower or bhp . This is the rate of work done on a turbomachine rotor. Some books call the bhp mechanical power, and use the notation . That notation is used in this example. m W & (a) Determine the impeller exit width b2 (b) Find the torque input (c) Find the power predicted by the Euler turbine equation. (d) the head rise predicted across the pump....
