Abstract

A two-dimensional CFD model for predicting the oscillating flow through a jet pump is developed. Various taper angles are investigated and total minor loss coefficients are derived. A good correspondence is achieved with experimental results from the literature. However, at higher taper angles a dramatic decay in the jet pump pressure drop is observed, which serves as a starting point for the improvement of jet pump design criteria for compact thermoacoustic applications
