Hello !

First of all, is it possible to do the simulation of a fan? If yes, is there a tutorial please?

I would like to study the impact of air flow on the blades of a fan. So I modeled the fan as follows (see file). I put as a boundary condition: wall1 for the duct wall2 for the hub wall3 for blades with its support. I added to the input and the output a surface(not shown in the figures) for pressure_inlet and pressure_outlet. But in the study, how can I rotate the blades? Is it possible with Fluent?
Is there a tutorial for the simulation of a fan?

Any suggestion would be great !

Can you just tell me if it's possible to simulate a fan just with design Modeler and Fluent? So that I don't lose time if it's not possible. Thanks !
