ABSTRACT

In the recent studies done on the investigation of the parameters influencing the hydram’s pumping efficiency it was revealed that there were some other dimensionless parameters like (Po / Pz ) and (Vs / Vd ) which were also found to influence the hydram’s pumping efficiency apart from the previously known ones which are (h3 / H) and (q / Q). This work had also established the usefulness of the basic operational parameters of a hydram water pumping system for predicting its pumping performance than before.
