A CFD method, previously developed by the authors for compressible flows, has been modified through a preconditioning technique to account for purely incompressible flows. Such a code is used to compute three-dimensional flows in a mixed flow pump impeller at design and off-design conditions. The results of the inviscid flow approach are critically discussed by comparison to available experimental data.
