The paper presents the results of an activity carried out on a three-bladed inducer and compares the experimental data from other similar inducers. All the inducers considered in the present study have been designed by means of the simplified analytical model recently developed by some of the authors. The main effects of different geometrical solutions on hydraulic performance and flow instabilities of the pumps under noncavitating and cavitating conditions are presented in the paper.
