Mass Flow Rate
I'm currently trying to simulate flow through a fan.I try to do the simulation based on "Flow in an Axial Rotor/Stator" tutorial.The problem is that I'm confused on what value should I placed as mass flow rate.As for my case, the total mass flow rate flow through the fan is 122 kg/s. But in the tutorial ,it use 0.06kg/s and set it's Mass Flow to be "Per Component".That value seems to be very small.Is it the mass flow rate through the blade only?

Below is the screenshot:

Yes, it is true.

Firstly thx for reply.So if I have 20 blades, it will be 122/20 = 6.1 kg/s and its mass flow will be "Per Component" .Am I right?

Yes, of course.
