In a pump, from the performance point of view, it is very important to minimize the shock loss at the inlet of the rotor blades. In this study, the effects of shape and install angle of the inlet guide on the performance of an axial-flow pump are numerically simulated using commercial CFD code, Ansys CFX. Finally, to obtain the optimized shape of the vanes and the install angle of the vanes in the inlet guide under given operating conditions, optimization analysis is conducted using Analysis design exploration based on response surface optimization.
