Fans in electronics enclosures - Any examples?
 
I am working up to an an analysis in CFX where we have some fans moving air in an electronics enclosure. These are squirrel cage fans. I would like to model them as momentum sources, but I have yet to find some good documentation or an example guiding one through the process of setting it up using a fan curve (and requisite the CEL). Any ideas where a CFX novice might begin? Web examples or even old CFD online threads would be great. I tried searching the CFD Online archives, but didn't get much in response. I may have had the wrong search terms.

Thanks for any help,

Craig Hildreth
