Abstract
A new-born design and construction of a mini gerotor metering pump with trochoidal-teeth is presented. The technical innovation in this new-born design is to study the fluid dynamic effects of interteeth and lateral clearances by using OpenFOAM toolbox, an open source CFD software. This work is based on two critical aspects, the deforming of the mesh following the solid gears rotation, a complex interaction between mesh and gear profile surface that has to maintain a moderate quality of the mesh...
