Computer-Aided Design of a Water Pump Impeller for the Chrysler 4.0 Liter 6 Cylinder Engine 970010

The development process of a water pump impeller used on a sport utility vehicle engine is described. A review of the design process is presented in this paper including the computer-aided flow analysis together with testing procedures. By computer modeling, one can estimate the coolant flow characteristics of a given impeller blade shape for providing increased cooling performance and improved efficiency on the engine. It also provides directions for the improved design. The test data are used specifically to confirm the analysis results.
