hi ,everyone
does anyone uses the "fan boundary condition" in Fluent software? I need some help in setting the parameter.
any help will be appreciated
wish all of you
This is the first time that I ask a quesion here,my English is not so well,wish you will unstand me well.

hi,
you can simply define a volume domain and in fluent change it from interior to fan. then set the pressure gradient between two sides of fan and swirl velocity(in 3-d) of rotating fan. then solve and see the results!

mohammad

I have no idea about how to set the swirl velocity which contains two component: radial velocity and tangential velocity...can u help me?

I only know something about the fan which is supposed to be static in the flow field. if your model is supposed to be swirl in the flow, i do not have much idea about how to set the parameters which are needed by Fluent Solver

hi,
I'm not sure but I think you can only set tangential velocity in fan models, not the radial. and the tangential is usually set as the rpm of the fan (propeller,turbine,compressor,...). if I'm not wrong, fluent uses pressure gradient as a pressure jump between two sides of fan zone and adds swirl velocity as V_theta=r*w to the flow. the result should not be so wrong but you know it's just an approximate!
yours,
mohammad

thanks to all.. actually my problem since at Gambit.. Fan is a part of my model.. I try a few method like subtract and split fan from flow field then set up bondary condition.. I dont know ist my problem at modelling or set up boundary condition in gambit.. Please help me..

Hello ! I know it's a really old post. But by any luck, can I have also the note on the fan model please?
Thank you very much

Greetings;

Im working on a project in which I have to analyse the flow over a spinning propeller and a cylindric body behind it, I would be really thankful if you could share those FAN notes with me as I was told this Boundary condition could be helpful to my model, thus Im trying to learn as much as I can about it to model my case.

My email is s.gkrlos@hotmail.com

Hey Ravi,I am modeling a water tunnel with a fan in it. I have already tried to use the tangential velocity and pressure jump as inputs without being successful. I will be very thankful to you if you send me your fan model to fjodor.arndt@web.de. Thank you in advance.
Cheers
