Abstract

The article reviews the main forms of flow-induced instabilities detected in the liquid propellant turbopumps systems of modern rocket engines, with special reference to rotating stall, rotating cavitation, cavitation surge and higher order surge modes, illustrating their characteristics, origin and damage potential.
