A summary of an extensive program of experimental and analytical work leading to a procedure for obtaining optimized performance of water jet-pump systems is presented. The procedure is extended to include systems involving n , series-staged ejector components operating in an optimal manner as a complete pump, pipeline, ejector unit. The theoretical, limiting performance of ejectors is established and several examples involving different design situations are shown.
