Abstract
Trochoidal gear pumps produce significant flow pulsations that result in pressure pulsations, which interact with the system where they are connected, shortening the life of both the pump and circuit components. And this behaviour is not acceptable for the demands of its current applications. The complicated aspects of the operation of a gerotor pump make computational fluid dynamics the proper tool for modeling and simulating its flow characteristics. Regarding the numerical simulation, a three...
