The test system will consist of a centrifugal pump that sits within an automated and instrumented flow loop. The flow loop will have a controlled variable resistance and pump rotational speed, and will monitor the pressure rise and flow rate of the pump. The system will be controlled and monitored through a LabView based program and user interface. The apparatus and pump housing will be fabricated from optically clear materials to allow flow visualization within the pump, including dye injection experiments and particle based methods such as Laser Doppler Velocimetry and particle Image Velocimetry. The apparatus will be designed and built with a modular construction so that design variations of impellers, volutes, and housings may be easily exchanged.

Weekly Team Meetings
- Tusesdays from 2:00 to 4:00
This outline for the posting of team created documents follows the general product development process presented in the textbook "Product Design and Development" by Ulrich and Eppinger.
Portions of the team documents have been prepared by a DPM student prior to the launch of this project. This information is intended to help get the team started with a first draft needs assessment and work breakdown structure. The team members can adapt this information as the project progresses.
Keep in mind that everything you include in this web tree is visible to the world and the general public. If you have documents that reflect work in progress, or contain data that has not been fully vetted, then it may be better to include those internal working documents in the private section of the web tree, or in the project repository proper, outside of the web tree. Note that anyone with Guest or higher membership in your project can read your entire project repository. Anyone with an Editor or higher membership can makes changes to your repository. All Observer members can view, but not edit, the web portion of your repository.
These links provide a basic starting point for your team to prepare a comprehensive web site about your project.
After you get started on the project, you may want to replace these introductory paragraphs with a photograph of your team. Near the conclusion of your design project, you may also wish to include a photo of your finished product.
