fan torque

I use FLUENT to simulate the fan. How can I calculate the torque on the fan?

I used the Report->moment. It showed the some results on the monitor. I don't know what mean about the results.

What does the three number mean?

total moment

Re: fan torque
yeah ther r respectively ur fan moments about x,y n z axis, u've to give exact enter at where u want the moments, for example, if ur fan is rotating about z=axis, give (0,0,1) the third value reads ur moment n neglect the first two, regards sharuk
