Description 
Fluid forces on a rotating and whirling centrifugal impeller in a volute are analyzed with the assumption of a twodimensional rotational, inviscid flow. For simplicity, the flow is assumed to be perfectly guided by the impeller vanes. The theory predicts the tangential and the radial force on the whirling impeller as functions of impeller geometry, volute spacing, and whirl ratio. A good qualitative agreement with experiment is found.
