To analyze the actual stress on the vanes of a pump impeller one of the things you need to know is the pressure contours on the surface of the the vanes, to do that you will need to create a model of the complete pump and run a CFD Analysis with Flow Simulation (COSMOS FlowWorks). Also, you will need to consider centrifugal forces, etc.
Stress, deformation, fatigue analysis, etc. of pump impellers is not an easy job, a centrifugal pump impeller is subject to many loads and forces and it is a rotodynamic hydromechanical component.
Find attached a similar case for the analysis of a gas turbine rotor, I wish it may help
