Design, construction and performance evaluation of axial flow fans

Keklikoğlu, Hayrettin Özgür
The primary purposes of this study are to examine the methods used in axial flow fan design, to perform these methods on the design of an axial fan, to develop a design application in order to reduce the design errors and spent time in the design process, and to determine the reliability of the application with numerical and experimental methods. This study is concerned with the design of axial flow fans. It provides detailed information about the design process — additionally, a design code is implemented. All of the empirical data regarding axial fan design are digitized, and an airfoil database is generated in order to use in the code. In order to determine the pre-validity of the design code, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods are used. The aerodynamic characteristics of fans are examined in ANSYS CFX by using SST
