 July 30, 2003, 17:28 hanging fan #1 Mavinakere. Guest   Posts: n/a how would one model a fan hanging from a ceiling wall in fluent? i checked out most of the tutorials and was not happy with the periodic BC example.Can i solve it using axisymmetric problem? if so how? I have to solve as 3D problem.Wiil be glad to hear any suggestions. Thanks,Mavinakere.

Just model a sector corresponding to one blade and use periodic BC's. Your upstream and downstream sections can be sectors which are circumferentially equivalent to the fan sector, so a Multiple Reference Frame approach would work fine. Have fun! cfdweirdo

And please tell me, could this be solved as axisyymetric problem? using any other BC. Thanks,Mavinakere.
