I'm trying to get my bearings (a somewhat heavy-handed expression) on pump design and I'm finding in the various books I've procured on the subject that there is very little consideration given to the output pressure developed by a pump.
If there isn't much detail to this question, I apologize; I'm still in the far-below-basic level of understanding. Obviously, head is a key parameter of pump design, but my concerns are with output pressure. The reason being, I'm considering for example rocket engine design where the key parameters of pump requirements are chamber pressure and flow rate. I understand that flow rate varies with head by the characteristic Q-H curves.
So, how does pump head vary with or affect the output pressure developed by a pump? Are the two concepts related, or are they independent of one another? If they are related, how would I go about figuring out the required head parameters from the pressure and flow requirements?
